CAIRO- 11 November 2017: Egypt is keen on reaching out to Africa in light of the importance it attaches to the continent, said Prime Minister Sherif Ismail on Saturday

The premier made the remarks during the inauguration of the second "Destination Africa Fair" for apparel and textiles, which is co-organized by ExpoLink.

The state is keen on renovating public spinning and weaving companies, as well as state-owned and private weavers, Ismail said.

He added that the production of long staple cotton will be expanded, noting that 128 companies owned by the public business sector are being renovated to boost production.

"Destination Africa" is a sourcing event for apparel and textiles from Africa targeted only at a limited number of invited trade visitors.

The product range comprises both ready-to-wear clothing for men, women and children and textiles, as well as fabrics for apparel and interior design, such as bed and table linen, curtains, carpets and upholstery.

As many as 75 companies are taking part in the fair that takes place at Nile Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Cairo on November 11-12.
