Travel reservations made by Italian tourists to visit Egypt have dived by 90 percent a year-on-year, Mohamed Abdel-Gabbar, the head of the Egyptian International Tourism Sector, told reporters Saturday. He laments the drop on the case of Italian student Giulio Regeni who was tortured and found dead in Cairo last week as well as the Russian plane crash in Sharm El-Sheikh last October 31st killing all 224 people on board. An Egyptian mission has participated in the International Travel Fair, known as Bit (Borsa Internazionale Del Turismo) held in Milano between February 11 and 13th, seeking to boost the tourism cooperation between the two countries.The International Travel Fair, known as Bit (Borsa Internazionale del Turismo) is an event that brings together trade operators from all over the world, a large audience of visitors, travel lovers, television reporters and press. On the sidelines of the Italian fair, the Egyptian official announced the Egyptian tourism authority had made a deal with Meridiana, the private capital Italian airline, to facilitate flights between Milano and Sharm El-sheikh starting March 2016. Italy came in the fifth place of the most countries that establish companies operating in the Egyptian tourism industry between January and November 2015, according to the Egyptian investment authority - GAFI. Italy ranked sixth in terms of the number of tourists arrived to Egypt in 2015 with total number of 333.000 tourists. In 2004, Italy was the first country to achieve the one million tourists to Egypt. More»

Egypt on Saturday reopened the Rafah border crossing with the Gaza Strip for two days after it remained closed for 70 days, a Palestinian statement said. The last time Egypt reopened the terminal was on on Dec. 3 last year for two days. In its statement, the Hamas-ruled Borders and Crossings Corporation said that Egypt reopened the crossing from its side and the first bus of passengers had already crossed. It added that the crossing will be working on Saturday and Sunday for Palestinians who want to travel in both directions, adding that priority is for humanitarian cases, students and those who hold dual citizenships. Hundreds of Palestinians gathered on Saturday morning at the Palestinian side waiting for busses to move them into Egypt. The corporation said that the Rafah terminal was opened for only 21 days in 2015, adding that the year was the worst ever for operating the crossing, the only gate for around 2 million Palestinians in Gaza to the world. Since 2007, Hamas movement has been ruling the Gaza Strip, including Rafah crossing after it violently seized control of the enclave following weeks of internal fighting with security forces of President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah Party.

Egypt's forensics authority handed over to the prosecutor general's office on Saturday its final autopsy report on the Italian student who was tortured and found dead in Cairo last week. Giulio Regeni, 28, had been researching independent trade unions in Egypt and had written articles critical of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's government - prompting speculation that he was killed at the hands of Egypt's security forces. Egypt's interior and foreign ministers both dismissed the notion of security forces being behind Regeni's murder. More»

Sirri Siam, an MP appointed to parliament by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who submitted his resignation request last week, told reporters Saturday that he might change his mind "if God wills." Siam, a former high-profile judge who was one of 28 public figures appointed by Al-Sisi to parliament last month, seemed to be in a good mood after he attended Al-Sisi's inaugural speech before the newly elected parliament on Saturday afternoon. In his resignation request on 8 February, Siam complained that he was being sidelined and marginalised by the parliament's leadership, and as a result he had chosen to submit his resignation. A lot of MPs said they were happy to see Siam coming to join them in listening to the speech on Saturday. More»

Egypt has sufficient wheat supply to last until mid May, after cancelling two tenders last week amid tensions with traders over Egyptian policy on grain fungus ergot, supply minister Khaled Hanafy said Saturday. Egypt's state grain buyer, the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC), bought 60,000 tonnes of Romanian wheat on Friday. Egypt, the world’s top wheat importer, is dependent on shipments from companies such as the international food commodities trader Bunge to meet domestic food needs. The country rejected Bunge’s cargo last month on the grounds that it contained traces of the ergot fungus, even though the country’s grain authority allows levels of up to 0.05 per cent. The move sowed confusion and frustration in the wheat trading world. The initial rejection by Egyptian authorities appears to have started due to a disagreement between the country’s agricultural and trade authorities. Although Egyptian ministries of supply and agriculture last weekend held a joint press conference to announce that it was allowing 0.05 per cent ergot, it could take a while for this decision to filter through the Egyptian bureaucracy. GASC is understood to have been working behind the scenes with Bunge in an effort to overturn the decision. “GASC are not to blame. They did not change rules. They want to keep all good suppliers on board,” one European grain trader told the Financial Times. One GASC official said the grain authority was stuck between the ministries of trade and agriculture. “We are under the ministry of supply. GASC is stuck in the middle,” said the official. More»

Works to establish Egypt’s first nuclear plant in Dabaa, west of Alexandria, will start ‘within weeks’, said Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in a speech in front of the newly-convened parliament. Sisi arrived has given his first speech in front of the newly convened House of Representatives Saturday at Cairo’s Downtown parliament building. Earlier, Moscow and Cairo signed an agreement last November for Russia to build a nuclear power plant in Egypt, with Russia extending a loan to Egypt to cover the cost of construction. A spokesman for Russia's state-owned nuclear firm Rosatom said the plant, Egypt's first, would be built at Dabaa in the north of the country and was expected to be completed by 2022. The project would involve the building of a 'third-generation' plant with four reactors, Sisi said in an earlier statement. He also said that the project is "peaceful" and aims to produce electricity. More»

The European Union (EU) is considering easing shipping regulations that it imposed on Egyptian products imported to European markets after the downing of the Russian commercial aircraft in Sinai last October. James Moran, head of the EU delegation in Egypt, said Egypt is the EU’s most important trade partner in the Middle East. EU member countries increased regulatory measures on Egyptian exports to EU countries, and some countries have limited air cargo transfers to designated cargo planes. During the conference to announce the implementation of the Trade and Domestic Market Enhancement Programme, Moran stated that Egyptian exports to EU countries rose to 11% in the past year and the size of EU investment in Egypt rose by 4% in 2015.

As Italians mourned, Italy's premier insisted Friday that his country's friendship with Egypt can only exist "if the truth emerges" about the death of an Italian doctoral student who was doing research in Cairo. Premier Matteo Renzi's remarks on Italian state radio came on the day of slain student Giulio Regeni's funeral and kept up the pressure on Egypt to find and bring to justice whoever tortured and killed the young man. Regeni had been living in Cairo to research Egyptian labor movements for his doctorate from Cambridge University. His body was found Feb. 3, nine days after he disappeared. In his hometown of Fiumicello in northeastern Italy, friends streamed in from afar for a private funeral service Friday in a gym and locals offered spare rooms to mourners. The media and authorities were excluded from the service, which set up 1,000 chairs for relatives and friends. Those who couldn't fit inside huddled together under umbrellas and listened to the service through loudspeakers. More»
