The second Ismailia Mango Festival began on Friday in the north-eastern Egyptian governorate.
The opening of the free festival attracted a significant number of visitors, including international tourists. It is taking place alongside the Export Forum — a paid event attended by sponsors, diplomatic and political delegations, merchants, companies, export councils, and exporters.
The festival was organized in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities.
Ismailia Gov. Major General Sherif Fahmy Bishara attended the opening ceremony along with representatives from several foreign embassies in Cairo.
