The Department of Economy and Tourism in Dubai (DET) announced it has organized a promotional campaign for Egyptian citizens from October 11-12, as Egypt is the largest major market for tourism within Dubai.

The daily program held in the cities of Alexandria and Cairo included a welcome speech and a presentation by the representative of the DET and the company “Planet”, which is authorized by the Federal Tax Authority and the operator of the “Planet Pay” system for refunding value-added tax for tourists.

Ahmed Al Marri, Head of Region – GCC and MENA International Operations, said: “We are very happy to celebrate visitors from sisterly Egypt, as we offer them the best and exceptional experiences to suit different tastes and ages.”

“We are always working to strengthen Dubai’s position as a global center for entertainment and trade, and one of the safest destinations around the world for holidays,” he explained.

“We are always looking forward to consolidating fruitful relations between the two countries, and the roadshow would enhance the economic potential of the two brotherly peoples and strengthen business partnerships with major consumers and business owners in Egypt.
