Cairo- Feb 28, 2022

Minister of Trade of Industry Nevine Gamea and Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad have met to explore the role of Egypt’s industry and private sector in hosting the upcoming COP27 in Sharm al-Sheikh next November.

Head of the Industrial Development Authority Mohamed al-Zallat and Executive Director of the Industrial Modernization Center Mohamed Abdel Karim attended the meeting, in addition to a host of senior officials concerned.

The meeting reviewed a number of ideas related to the participation of Egyptian industry in this key international event, especially green and environment-friendly industries.

“The ministry is expanding the use of clean energy in vehicles, solar heaters in industrial operations and solar cell systems,” Gamea said, further pointing to its project to raise the efficiency of entrepreneurs in the field of green industries in cooperation with various international bodies.

This conference, she further added, is a great opportunity to find partnerships between investors from Egypt and African countries in energy efficiency, clean energy uses and circular economy, especially in light of Egypt's current presidency of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and its keenness to achieve economic integration on the continent.

The two ministers agreed on forming a joint working group to coordinate the participation of the industrial sector in the climate conference, and follow up on preparations of side events in the Zarqa region, as well as the green and sustainable industry project to be signed at COP27.
