Egypt is eager to tap into the Chinese market to revive its ailing tourism industry, Governor of Egypt's Luxor Governorate Mohamed Badr told Xinhua in a recent interview. China has become the fourth largest exporter of tourists to Egypt since the beginning of 2017. Official figures from the Egyptian Embassy in Beijing show a total of 147,000 Chinese tourists visited Egypt in the first five months of 2017, marking a 94 percent rise from the same period last year.
