“The government has made a serious effort to ensure the success of the Egyptian participation in Expo 2020 Dubai,” Gamea said pointing to the distinguished Egyptian-style pavilion at the Expo intended to reflect its significance regionally and globally.

Egypt, she added, will be presented as a favorable investment destination in the region, with its smart cities, industrial zones and the Suez Canal economic zone.

She indicated that Egypt pavilion will stage 113 events, during the duration of the Expo, on the topics of cities and urban development, tourism, sustainable development, health, agriculture, women, and youth; in addition to recreational and cultural ones.

The minister further noted that the pavilion received 10,000 visitors before the highly-anticipated grand opening on September 30 .

Concerning the Decent Life Initiative, Gamea said that it is one of the key national projects adopted by the government to develop the Egyptian countryside, under President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s directives to advance the national industry and improve the quality of life of Egyptian people.

She added that the necessary measures are being taken to establish 317 artisanal and professional industrial complexes in the main villages. Seven were already launched in October in the governorates of Alexandria, Red Sea, Al-Gharbeya, Beni Suef, Minya, Sohag and Luxor; while six are being completed in Assiut, Aswan, Beheira, Qena and Fayoum.

In response to a question about the local industry and exports, Gamea said that the Egyptian industry achieved high growth levels during the last quarter of the fiscal year, and referred to the recently approved export support program that includes various incentives, such as an 80% coverage of shipping costs to Africa and others to support exports of ceramics and autos.
