Egypt’s first, largest trade mission to Cameroon and Senegal,
during the period of July 4-9, has pulled off exports contracts worth $26
million in the fields of cement, fertilizers, chemicals, packaging materials,
engineering industries, food, sanitary ware, plastic pipes and carpets.
Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea said that the
second trade mission will visit Togo and Cote D’Ivoire during the last quarter
of the year, within the “Egypt- West and Central Africa Bridge” initiative.
“The fruitful results of the first, largest mission to Africa
will pave the way towards the national strategy to boost Egyptian exports to
West and Central African markets,” Gamea said.
The ministry, she added, aims to raise exports to Senegal and
Cameroon, from $35 million and $42 million to $200 million and $125 million
