FILE – Minister of Public Business Sector Hisham Tawfik- Egypt Today
CAIRO - 11 May 2020: The Public Business Sector Ministry signed on Tuesday with the Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce (FECC) and Federation of Egyptian Industries (FEI) a protocol on developing the first electronic catalog for Egyptian products.
The protocol was signed by Public Business Sector Minister Hesham Tawfik, FECC President Ibrahim Al Araby, and FEI Chairman Mohamed el Sewedy.
In this regard, Tawfiq said the agreement is a practical embodiment of the active partnership between the government and the private sector in line with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi's directives to promote the economy.
The protocol will open new markets for the Egyptian factories and companies in the African countries, as the catalog will be a promotion tool for the Egyptian products, Tawfiq noted.
The agreement integrates with the ministry's efforts to offer a package of services for exporters through its companies like the Holding Company for Maritime and Land Transport and the Insurance Holding Company, Tawfiq pointed out.
The minister hailed the fruitful cooperation among the ministry, FECC, and FEI, urging the members of the two federations to register the data of their companies and products on the catalog.
