Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea and Minister of Supply and Internal Trade Ali al-Moselhi left Cairo this morning heading to Juba, the capital of South Sudan, to inaugurate the "Made in Egypt" exhibition, held on July 13-16 under the auspices of Egypt Expo & Convention Authority (EECA).

Over an area of 1800 square meters, the expo will display products of 27 Egyptian companies operating in the sectors of food industries, household appliances, ready-made clothes, medical supplies, milling, services, logistics and handicrafts.

"The event comes within the government's strategy to boost Egyptian exports to foreign markets, especially Africa, and to facilitate trade flows with the continent," Gamea said at the opening ceremony, noting that South Sudan is one of the promising emerging African markets that has great opportunities for Egyptian exports.

In her speech, the minister also announced the establishment of an Egyptian conference hall in Juba, to be a permanent showcase for Egyptian products.

According to official data, Egypt-South Sudan trade amounted to $707,000 last year. Vegetables, fruits, sugar, glass and cotton are among the key goods exchanged between the two countries.
