Egypt's Tourism Minister Rania El-Mashat will attend Germany's leading tourism trade show, ITB Berlin, from 7 to 11 March, seeking to boost interest in the country's tourism industry, the ministry said on Tuesday.

Egypt will have a large booth at the exhibition, involving 100 participants from the Egyptian tourism industry, including hotels, travel agencies, EgyptAir and the Egyptian Tourism Federation, the ministry statement said.

El-Mashat will attend several official meetings and media events on the sidelines of the ITB, seeking to raise Egypt's profile and encourage investment in the sector.
