After the two attacks last January 7 and 8, Egypt's government announced a series of measures to strengthen security in touristic areas, particularly the beach resorts of Sharm-el-Sheikh and Hurghada.
This money will be used particularly to install video surveillance systems at the beach resorts of Sharm-el-Sheikh and Hurghada, that will be integral to the private video surveillance systems at hotels. This program will then be deployed at other tourist destinations. Other measures have also been planned: additional detection equipment, reinforced personnel security at resorts, around hotels and sea and land routes, as well as sniffer dogs in tourist destinations.
"The security of visitors to Egypte remains our biggest priority. I am convinced that these new measures will strengthen the security of our tourist stations without being invasive for tourists, so our visitors may fully enjoy their holidays," declared the minister.
