Egypt’s ministries of tourism and education agreed on Saturday to develop a vision for introducing tourism ethics in the primary education curricula, in order to raise awareness among students of tourism’s importance and the preservation of Egypt’s tourist and heritage areas.

Minister of Education Tarek Shawki also agreed during a meeting with Minister of Tourism Rania al-Mashat to organize a competition entitled “The Ambassador of Tourism” for high school students across the country, beginning with the new school year.

Shawki and Mashat have chosen to prepare a cooperation protocol to implement an agreed framework of cooperation between the two ministries, through the formation of a joint committee.
