Cairo- Dec 15, 2021

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has met with Wolfram Diener, president and CEO of German Messe Düsseldorf fair authority, and his accompanying delegation, on the sidelines of Food Africa, to discuss boosting mutual cooperation in the field of exhibitions.

Gamea expressed the ministry's keenness to develop the sector, with the aim of turning Egypt into a regional and global center for international fairs, especially that it is a major hub for global exports to access the markets of the Middle East and Africa.

She stressed the importance of signing a cooperation agreement between the Egyptian government and the leading German trade fair ground and organizer, to benefit from the great experiences of the international platform, being one of the key global players in the field.

Diener, for his part, referred to the possibility of Egypt becoming a member of Save Food, a joint initiative launched by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Messe Düsseldorf, and interpack, which aim to help promote the production, packaging and storage of safe agricultural products with lower wastage rates.
