Cairo- Nov 9,2021


Nevine Gamea, minister of trade and industry, issued Ministerial Resolution No. 533 of 2021 to stop importing the basic components of three-wheeled “tuk-tuk” vehicles, including the base, chassis and engine, and this decision is effective from the day following the date of its publication in the Egyptian Gazette.

In this context, Gamea explained that this decision came after a careful study by all concerned agencies and aims to replace the tuk-tuk with a safe means of transportation, in implementation of the presidential initiative to replace vehicles with clean energy, especially “natural gas.

The Ministry had formed a committee to set rules and mechanisms to replace three-wheeled vehicles with minivans, where the committee ended up issuing a number of recommendations that were submitted to the Prime Minister, who directed the swift implementation of these recommendations in order to improve the citizen’s lifestyle and provide safe means of transportation.
