This year is all about women empowerment and solidarity and surprisingly Egypt has taken its part in a global movement towards female inclusion. Prime Minister Sherif Ismail’s cabinet changes graced us with one of the classiest women our government has witnessed, Rania Al-Mashat.
With an impressive resume as former Sub-Governor for Monetary Policy at the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) and senior economist and head consultant at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the woman with an economic background has completely dominated the tourism scene.
One thing that we refuse to go unnoticed is her impeccable fashion choices at The Gouna Film Festival. The minister carries herself with simplicity and dominance, where every outfit screamed girl power. She is classy. She is elegant. She’s our rather royal minister of tourism and we couldn’t love her more.

#GFF18 Egyptian independant film Yomeddin has been garnering critical acclaim and making global waves since its premier at Cannes earlier this year – and Egypt's Minister of Tourism @raniaalnashat shares a similar enthusiasm for the heartwarming movie, which revolves around a man with leprosy who goes off in search of the family that abandoned him. Directed by Abu Bakr Shaky, it opened on the second day of the festival to an overwhelmingly positive response and a standing ovation by the crowd. Here, Her Excellency shares her views on the movie that is Egypt's official submission for the 2019 Oscars in the Foreign Language category. #GFF #ElGounaFilmFestival
