Cairo- Oct 2, 2021

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has met with Major General Bahaa Zeidan, head of the Egyptian Authority for Unified Procurement "UPA", to discuss ways to implement the President's initiative to support young doctors.

The meeting was attended by Vice President of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency (MSMEDA) Tarek Shash, and Chairman of Egypt Expo & Convention Authority Mai Assal.

The two officials agreed on developing an action plan to organize specialized exhibitions in Cairo and major governorates, to provide medical equipment for doctors and radiology centers through soft financing programs, in cooperation with the Doctors’ Syndicate.

The fairs, Gamea noted, will be held under the auspices of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, starting in Greater Cairo, then in the governorates of Upper and Lower Egypt.

“The move aims to encourage young doctors to start their working lives, benefiting from the wide range of services provided by the government,” the minister said, pointing to the Central Bank’s current drive towards increasing the financing portfolio for small and medium projects to 25% in various productive sectors.

The minister explained that the initiative will be implemented by manufacturers and importers of medical equipment, the MSMEDA as well as financial institutions.
