Egypt is keen on supporting all foreign investments which contribute to manufacturing high quality Egyptian products in order to meet the local market needs and export surplus, Minister of Trade and Industry Amr Nassar said on Sunday 18/11/2018.
Nassar’s remarks came during a meeting with a delegation from the Turkish glass company Pasha Bakhtasha.
