Deputy General Director of the China International Import Expo Bureau, Li Guoqing, highlighted the strong economic ties between China and Egypt. “Both nations are committed to supporting diversified and continuous trade, and we are eager to see more Egyptian products reach Chinese markets,” he stated.

Li Guoqing further emphasized China’s desire to promote economic openness with Egypt, Africa’s leading economy and China’s biggest trade partner on the continent. The CIIE’s impressive track record speaks for itself: companies from 181 countries participated in previous editions, showcasing a staggering 2,400 products.
