The Mediterranean Tourism Forum MEDITOUR 2019 organized by ASCAME

In the framework of EBSOMED, ASCAME in collaboration with GACIC organizes its first EU Med Roadshow "The Mediterranean Tourism Forum – MEDITOUR 2019" to be held on July 13 and 14, 2019, in Alexandria, Egypt. Tourism is one of the most important economic sectors in the Mediterranean region, particularly for countries (or regions within countries) with limited industrial or agricultural development. The tourism sector contributes to the region to 11.3 % of total GDP, 11.5 % of employment, 11.5% of exports and 6.4% of capital investments. Tourism is on the rise in the Mediterranean Countries and is expected to receive 420 million tourists by 2020. Tourism Businesses of the Mediterranean face a lot of new challenges to cope with the digitalization of the tourist, human-made pressures to the environmental and social sustainability of destinations as well as the economic viability of the sector.
