Fakhry Abdel Nour meets with the Polish ambassador in Cairo
The trade volume between Egypt and Poland increased by 8.6 percent during the last six months, Egypt's Minister of Trade and Industry Fakhri Abdul Nour said in a recent meeting with Piotr Puchta, the Polish Ambassador to Cairo.
Abdul Nour said that the trade exchange between Egypt and the European country should increase during the transition period, which according to the ambassador of Poland his country supports.
Inter-trade between any two countries requires exchanging experience in industry, establishing bilateral projects as well as boosting the tourism sector, Abdul Nour said during the meeting.
Tourism represents 11.3 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) in Egypt.
Abdul Nour noted that Egypt and Poland can establish bilateral tourism projects that can transform Egypt as a tourist hub.
Egypt was considered an important hub by Europe, African countries and the Middle East, Ambassador Puchta said.
Puchta invited Egyptian businessmen to attend a national conference in Poland in a bid to discuss further investment cooperation.
