Egypt assures Ukraine of providing high standards of tourist service amid pandemic.

Egypt stands ready to continue to provide high standards of tourist service and travel safety in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was discussed during a phone conversation between Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Arab Republic of Egypt Sameh Shoukry, Ukrinform reports with reference to the press service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.

The ministers welcomed the intensification of bilateral relations achieved after the talks between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and President of Egypt Abdel Fattah al-Sisi last summer. The parties outlined the priorities for further intensification of the dialogue at high and highest levels and agreed to hold political consultations between the foreign ministries this year.

"The Egyptian minister positively noted the constant interest of Ukrainian tourists in visiting Egypt and assured that the Egyptian side is ready to continue to provide the highest standards of service and travel safety in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic," the statement reads.

Kuleba and Shoukry discussed preparations for this year's meeting of the Ukrainian-Egyptian intergovernmental commission on economic, scientific and technical cooperation and the signing of new agreements between the two countries.

"I am convinced that the meeting of the commission will give an important impetus to the development of trade and economic cooperation between Ukraine and Egypt, as well as enrich our relations with new serious projects," Kuleba noted.

Shoukry assured Kuleba of mutual readiness to prepare and hold the abovementioned event for the development of trade between Ukraine and Egypt.

As a reminder, Egypt is a key economic partner of Ukraine on the African continent. The total volume of trade in goods and services between Ukraine and Egypt in 2020 amounted to USD 1.8 billion.

In 2020, 727 thousand Ukrainian tourists visited Egypt. According to this indicator, Ukraine ranked first among foreign countries whose citizens visited Egypt last year for tourism purposes.
