"The EU welcomes the new Strategy of the Ministry of Trade and Industry which focuses on making the Egyptian industry more competitive so as to increase exports and to create jobs. We will continue to provide support to the Ministry and its stakeholders for the implementation of this Strategy through our ongoing TDMEP cooperation programme as well as forthcoming support for development of small and medium enterprises. We are keen to see the Ministry cooperate with the private sector in formulating the sector specific strategies. We want to see stakeholders align behind the important and essential ambition of generating inclusive growth in the Egyptian economy. A comprehensive strategic framework which is implemented without delays will go long way in building the much needed predictability for attracting new investments" said Mr Brender during the launch event. The Trade and Domestic Market Enhancement Programme, funded by the European Union, to the magnitude of EUR 20 million, are implemented by the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
