Sherine ElSharkawy, Egypt’s Deputy Minister of Finance for Economic Affairs, mentioned India as an interesting destination for tourism and investment as the country has numerous famous spots and tourist attractions.
She gave this statement during the cultural program and organized for the G20 delegates on the ‘The Bengal Paddle’ cruise ship in Kolkata.
ElSharkawy commented that India has various tourism opportunities, especially information technology. She said, “India is an ideal spot for tourism and investment as the country holds numerous cultures and languages. Additionally, there’s a number of prospects in the business and IT sector”.
While interviewing ANI, ElSharkawy emphasized that India impressed her by inviting countries that didn’t have an opportunity to share their opinions and concerns with other nations. She mentioned these working group meetings held under India’s G20 presidency as “quite useful.”
“All the working groups I’ve been a part of have been very helpful in facilitating conversations and exchanging ideas between members and outsiders. The speaker continued that the issues were all well-picked and crucial given the economy’s state.
She also brought up the ties between Egypt and India. Sherine emphasized that the two countries have close ties to one another, much like people do. “We are identical to people from the same culture who enjoy the same types of Food, religion and music. This is highly varied, and India and Egypt cooperate on many different fronts”.
When asked if she would return to India, Sherine ElSharkawy said, “Yes, I surely will. I am enthusiastic about that. She mentioned that she went to the G20 summit in Bengaluru and will return to India to attend meetings in about a month.
The hospitality in Kolkata and the cultural programme on the cruise ship, according to Sherine ElSharkawy, were “wonderful.” The Egyptian Minister commented on the exhibitions, saying, “The shows were extremely intriguing. It demonstrated how far India has come and how much they have accomplished. The exhibits were quite helpful to me.
“Everything about the place is incredibly friendly. The river Nile in Egypt makes me think of home and has a hint of Indian culture. I genuinely appreciate this.
