In a board of directors’ meeting, attended by Minister of International Cooperation and Investment Sahar Nasr, GAFI’s board said the investment projects will involve building an aluminum factory in Mit Ghamr, refractory materials’ facilities in El-Saf and food industries factory in Benha.
The projects will be launched in partnership with GAFI, allowing it to take a share of the projects’ revenues.
“The new projects will boost the cycle of small- and medium-sized enterprises, increase workforce, provide new job opportunities and attract foreign investments,” the statement read.
