Cairo- Mar 5, 2021

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has held an expanded meeting with members of the Egyptian Handicrafts Export Council (EHEC), headed by al-Walid al-Shami.

 

The meeting explored means of developing the sector, by increasing the competitiveness of Egyptian handicraft products both on the domestic and foreign markets and boosting its exports.

“The political leadership is keen to promote the handicrafts and heritage industry and respond to all the challenges facing it, being one of the labor-intensive sectors that generate jobs, especially in Upper Egypt, border and tourist governorates,” Gamea affirmed.

She stressed the importance of creating an integrated database of all the projects operating in this field for easier access to financing, training and capacity building programs, as well as participation in internal and external exhibitions.
