Cairo- July 24, 2020

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has held a virtual meeting with representatives of the World Bank, led by Mohamed Nada, senior urban specialist at the World Bank Group, to discuss the latest developments in the Upper Egypt Local Development Project for Results.

The objective of the PforR Project, which kicked off in 2018,  is to improve the business environment for private sector development and strengthen local government capacity for quality infrastructure and service delivery in select governorates in Upper Egypt, namely: Sohag and Qena.

“The government is keen to strengthen cooperation with the World Bank in all ongoing mutual programs, especially the Upper Egypt Local Development PforR,”  Gamea stressed.

She further added that the project has made headway, with its beneficiaries going up to 5 million out of a total of 8 million citizens in the two governorates, in addition to beneficiary companies rising to 4,000.
