Minister of Trade and Industry Ahmed Samir has held cooperation talks with Executive Director of the International Trade Centre (ITC) Pamela Coke-Hamilton, on the margins of the UN Sharm el-Sheikh COP27.

The meeting explored the ITC-funded programs in African countries in the fields of technical support, capacity building, women and youth empowerment, and SME development.

“Egypt is looking forward to more cooperation with the ITC, especially in the institutional development of government entities concerned with foreign trade, namely the Ministry of Trade and Industry and its affiliates,” Samir said.

The two officials also reviewed other cooperation projects implemented in Egypt, including: She Trades, GTEX/MENATEX, as well as other trade facilitating programs and grants.

Furthermore, Samir met with Eugene Willemsen, PepsiCo’s CEO for Africa, Middle East and South Asia, where they discussed the company’s future plans in the local market and its recent sustainability strategy which targets every stage of the value chain to use resources more efficiently, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, replenish water and improve products.
