Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has issued urgent instructions that Safaga’s Abu Tartur Port, which is affiliated to the ministry, will remain operating during the Eid Al-Fitr holiday.

In a press statement on Monday, the ministry said the instructions were handed to Industrial and Mining Projects Authority (IMPA) officials. The port will remain open to end procedures for shipping a boat containing 50,000 tonnes of phosphate directed at foreign markets.

“This move comes as a quick response from the Minister of Trade and Industry [Gamea] to a call of distress, which she received from a company via WhatsApp, as work was interrupted at the port due to the Eid Al-Fitr holiday, as the minister directed IMPA officials to move immediately and begin the shipping process,” the ministry noted.
