About 300 companies from the sectors of real estate, construction, furniture, and electronics will participate in the Made in Egypt Exhibition alongside around 2,000 investors.
The total size of investments that will be presented at the exhibition amount to around EGP 2bn, Ahmed Raafat told Daily News Egypt. Raafat is the CEO of Express Arab, the company organising the exhibition.
He said that the Made in Egypt Exhibition is held under the auspices of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and will be inaugurated by Minister of Housing Mostafa Madbouly on behalf of Prime Minister Sherif Ismail. The event is held between 6 and 10 July.
Furthermore, a featured conference will be held on the sidelines of the exhibition to discuss the most important opportunities and challenges for the respective industries and investment in Egypt, as well as ways of developing the sector. Additionally, the conference will discuss the role of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in supporting and developing the Egyptian economy, according to Raafat.
He noted that the exhibition is dedicated to the industrial sector in Egypt and the Arab region, as the exhibition is characterised by a diversity of projects and participating companies, in addition to adopting a clear strategy to support the economy in general and the Egyptian economy in particular.
Rafaat stressed that the exhibition aims to promote the Egyptian industrial sector and create investment opportunities that attract a lot of Arab and foreign investors.
The exhibition will also be attended by a large number of ministers, headed by the Ministers of Industry, Supply, Investment, Planning, and Solidarity, as well as representatives of the Presidency, the Council of Ministers, and a number of businesspeople and owners of investment companies.
“The success of the exhibition will help in highlighting the efforts exerted by the government, especially the New Administrative Capital project and the development of the Suez Canal axis, in addition to many facilities approved by the government for investors,” Raafat said. “Many Egyptian and Arab investors, developers, and manufacturers are interested in identifying the opportunities available in the Egyptian market and the facilities offered by the government to investors and manufacturers, which will be presented through the exhibition.”
