Tourism in Israel

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/travel/article/tourism_in_israel_20001103

Ehud Barak has the hardest job in Israel these days, but Itai Eiges' is no walk in the park, either. As director general of the ministry of tourism, Eiges is in charge of promoting an industry that has been crippled by the recent conflict. Tour operators are reporting a 50 percent cancellation rate, the U.S. State Department has instituted a travel warning on the Middle East, and Britain has levied one against Jerusalem. It is the worst drop-off in travel in decades.
