Dear Sir/madam
I just need to make a simple clarification regarding the world tourism regions. According to the classification of UNWTO the countries of Africa such as Egypt and Libya belongs to the ...Middle East tourism region. But in many of the articles of the same organization those two countries have been described as African destinations. I shall be grateful if you let me know the right answer. Whether those two countries belongs to the Middle eastern region or the African region.

Previously I apologize because I am not a worker/employee but I am a student,

Because I took the initiative to attend your conference and I am very interested in this field of conference. Therefore I... enlist in your organization that will carry out the conference

I really intend to follow this conference but I have some obstacles that I have to say:
1. What are the travel costs from my country to your country at the expense of your organization or my own responsibilities?
2. Does the accommodation cost during this conference be funded by your organization?
3. Cost costs after the conference will be financed by your organization?

Thank you
