The Engineering Export Council of Egypt announced Wednesday the launch of a trade mission consisting of 10 companies in engineering industries to Mauritius next Saturday. The mission comes within the framework of the Export Council’s plan to increase exports to African markets.
Executive Director of the Engineering Export Council of Egypt, May Helmy, stated that the Council seeks to open new export markets, especially in Africa, in order to support the state’s plans to promote exports and achieve the goal of increasing exports to $100bn in the coming years.
Helmy noted that Egyptian Foreign Ministry has played a great role in facilitating the organization of the Egyptian mission to Mauritius, where a large group of bilateral meetings are scheduled to be held between the Egyptian companies and factories participating in the mission and their counterparts from Mauritius, to learn about export opportunities available in Egypt in all sectors of engineering industries.
She highlighted the council’s focus on the African market during the coming period in order to promote exports of various engineering sectors, especially since the African market is very promising for Egypt’s engineering products, which supports the Egyptian government’s plans to have a strong presence in African markets.
