Tourism contributes a huge amount of money and employment to the Egyptian economy. In 2008, there were more than 12.8 million visitors to Egypt and they brought in almost 11 billion US dollars of revenue. Approximately 12 percent of the Egyptian workforce is employed in the tourism sector. Mohab El.
