Said- Sep 17, 2021
Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea and Minister of
Finance Mohamed Maait, together with Governor of Port Said Adel al-Ghadban have
opened the "Made in Port Said" expo, the first industrial exhibition
in the governorate, held from September 17 to October 1 and organized by the
Port Said Chamber of Commerce on the sidelines of the Port Said Forum.
The opening ceremony was attended by Fayza Abul-Naga, the
President’s advisor for national security affairs, al-Zalat, head of the
Industrial Development Authority, Mohamed Saada, president of the Port Said
Chamber of Commerce, as well as parliament members and top governorate officials.
“The ministry is keen to provide all support for initiatives promoting
industrial development in Port Said, being one of the key industrial
governorates in Egypt,” Gamea said, noting that the event showcases the
industrial capabilities in Port Said and represents an excellent opportunity to
connect manufacturers and suppliers.
She pointed out that the city has the potential to be an
attractive destination for local and foreign investments, especially with its distinguished
location on the Mediterranean Sea and the Suez Canal, which renders it a key industrial
and logistic hub for Egyptian exports to access various global markets.
The government, she added, seeks to transform Port Said from
a commercial city into a productive base, in the efforts to stimulate local
manufacturing, increase the added value of the governorate's products and create
more job opportunities for its people.
In this context, Gamea indicated that the first industrial park
for small industries in Port Said was established in southern Raswa, over a
total area of 181,000 m2, housing factories that
produce food products, chemicals and textiles.
She added that the expo has 48 pavilions displaying products
of 26 factories, located in the industrial zone in Port Said, including: confectioneries,
dairy, paints, ready-made clothes, perfumes, leather products, oils, textiles,
batteries, electrical appliances, cardboard and car upholstery.
