Prominent businessman Mohamed Aboul Enein, the founder and chairman of Cleopatra Group, expressed his happiness at sponsoring the new archaeological discovery in Saqqara, to support Egyptian achievements in various fields.

Aboul Enein stressed that the tourism sector is witnessing a major breakthrough thanks to the efforts of Antiquities Minister, Dr. Khaled Al-Anani, who deals with Egyptian antiquities as a national global project that presents Egypt’s history and ancient civilization to the world with a modern technological and professional thought.

The prominent businessman confirmed that the treasures of king Tutankhamun dazzled the capitals of the world such as Los Angeles, Paris, and London and attracted millions of visitors.

He noted that the great archaeological discoveries in Egypt, such as Assassif cache in Luxor attracted the attention of the whole world.

He stressed  that in 2020,  Egypt will start a new era in tourism and will become the most attractive country to tourists, especially with the resumption of British flights.

Noteworthy, in the presence of Aboul Enein, and writer Elham Aboul El Fateh, the General Manager of Cleopatra Media Group, Minister of Antiquities Khaled el-Anani announced on Saturday a new archaeological discovery in Saqqara archaeological area.
