The MTI’s work plan will be focusing on localizing national industry and reoperating closed factories.

Cairo- Dec 22, 2019

In her first statements after being sworn-in, Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea said that developing the manufacturing sector tops the ministry’s priorities during the current period, especially with President al-Sisi’s initiative to encourage local industry.

“The MTI’s work plan will be focusing on major areas, namely: localizing national industry through the National Industrial Localization Program (NILP), as well as reoperating closed factories and supporting ailing ones,”  she noted.

Gamea added that the ministry envisages establishing 13 industrial parks with a total of 4,500 factories, which she said would “boost the manufacturing sector’s productivity and create more direct jobs”.
