Cairo- September 16, 2020

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has announced resuming exports of all types of alcohol and its derivatives, surgical masks, and coronavirus protective equipment to all foreign markets.

The decree, hence, rescinds Ministerial Decrees No. 186 and No. 187 of 2020 halting the export of alcohol and by-products; surgical masks and infection prevention equipment, respectively.

The minister pointed out that the decision came after coordination with the Unified Medical Procurement Authority, on the grounds that there is a sufficient stock of such products to cover the local demand.

“The government is keen to fully provide domestic as well as export markets with essential medical equipment for combatting coronavirus,” Gamea stressed.

She added that the ministerial order concerns exports of medical products, including: alcohol of all kinds and its derivatives, protective suits, latex gloves, surgical masks, N95 masks, face shields, and protective glasses.
