Cairo- Feb 1, 2022

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has issued a decree extending for one year existing export duties on a number of minerals, as of February 9, except for shipments exported to production projects in Egypt’s free zones and within the quantities approved by the General Authority For Investment and Free Zones.

The extended levies apply on talc- crushed at EGP 1,200/tonne, powder at EGP 500/tonne and less than 50 micron powder at EGP 300/tonne; quartz at EGP 150/tonne; rough or pre-trimmed marble blocks at EGP 400/ tonne; raw or pre-trimmed granite blocks at EGP 400/tonne; and sand at EGP 150/tonne.

“The decision comes within the ministry’s strategy aimed at increasing the added value of primary products, hence encouraging the local industry by providing its locally-manufactured requirements,” said Ibrahim al-Seguiny, assistant minister for economic affairs.
