Alexandria

Don’t we all love taking a trip with your family to go visit the beautiful land of Alexandria? Or maybe even go on a quick road trip with your friends to enjoy some tasty ice cream cones and have dinner at Balbaa?

The city of Alexandria is one of the things we Egyptians cherish the most. It’s a beautiful place to live in and tourists travel the world to spend one precious day by the beautiful sea. With time, the city has slowly been decaying because of the harsh weather and because of the people mistreating the streets and areas. Which is why Alexandria needs this chance to become a better cleaner city and come back even stronger than it ever was before!

You’d be excited to hear that there are new plans set in store to take place in 2030 that promises a newer and better Alexandria. As much as it is a marvelous city, slum areas are the main reason why people get uncomfortable in Alexandria. Which is why Alexandria is saying au revoir to slum areas!

There are around 7 slum areas in the heart of Alexandria, imagine a world where all these areas are reconstructed and modernized? The governorate is promised to be transformed along the coming years to truly be a major touristic attraction hence promoting for tourism.

Due to there having been several conflicts over construction violations years before 2011, the Alexandrian Governor Mohamed El Sherief stressed on adjusting legal positions as well as respecting the laws and regulations given to them.

On a brighter note, it was said during the governor’s interview with Extra Nile Satellite that a part of the plan to renovate and enhance Alexandria is to develop electrical and sanitation services as well as planting more trees, properly paving the streets and even installing street lights. We all know how much Alexandria is in need of this change!

The campaign has already commenced since December by removing barrier blocks that are haphazardly scattered along the infamous corniche.

License renewal as new laws will be set in motion to preserve the view which is the main reason people visit Alexandria.

We’re all looking forward to a better cleaner city to grow and evolve in only a matter of 10 years. The wait may seem long but I promise you this, time flies and the wait is worth it! The motive behind this entire move is that people have the right to see the sea, and with that said, let the change commence!

Are you working from home? Are you looking to make the most of it? Well, the Barbados government is making quite the mind-blowing proposal for remote employees!

They are giving you the opportunity to relocate your position and work from home/ the Caribbean! How insanely cool is this opportunity?

Prime Minister Mia Mottley is considering the introduction of a “Barbados Welcome Stamp” which gives the change to international travelers to live on the island and work remotely for up to a year.

We see you packing up your bags already!

Ms Mottley is proposing such a cool idea seeing that short-term travel has become a difficult and hectic thing, in a time of the pandemic.

According to Travel Market Report, tourism makes up 40% of Barbados’ GDP and 30% of its workforce is employed in the sector. Which is why the pandemic really impacted their economy in a negative way.

Barbados is set to open its borders to international visitors on 12 July, and Mottley proposed offering the option of a year-long stay in time of the flights’ resumption.

If given the chance, would you go for such an opportunity?

By

Oxford Business Group (OBG) said in a report that some emerging countries, including Egypt, are expected to become favorable touristic destinations after coronavirus restrictions have been eased gradually.

After all, tourists are looking for affordable and accessible options, so they’re going for the countries with flexible labor laws and to the countries that have its touristic destinations safe and ready to welcome back travelers as their GDP depend heavily on tourism.

The OBG report also said that the Radisson hotel chain, as an example, announced recently that it is still keen on its expansion plans in Africa, and is targeting Morocco, Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa in specific.

Moreover, some emerging markets are well placed to leverage an anticipated shift in consumer preferences, according to the report.

“Egypt is again seeking to take advantage of this; the country has been promoting travel to archaeological sites in Upper Egypt, offering discounts on tickets and a reduction in visa fees for travellers who fly into the region directly”, the report said.

“Conferences and other business-oriented events will likewise be difficult to organise for the foreseeable future, given the ongoing necessity of social distancing. Indeed, as early as late March, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry estimated that some 500 trade shows had been cancelled as a result of Covid-19 crisis, resulting in an estimated €23 billion in lost orders,” the report added.
