CAIRO - 17 July 2019: Cairo Chamber of Commerce (CCC) has signed a cooperation protocol with the Arab Union of Customs Executives (AUCE) with the aim to boost Arab trade exchange.
Chairman of the CCC Ibrahim el Araby said Wednesday the protocol is meant to increase inter-Arab trade and investment, as well as open more markets.
Arab countries should, under the protocol, share their know-how in technology, training and advanced commercial and industrial methods, Araby noted.
Based in Cairo, the AUCE branches and offices enjoy the privileges and immunities provided for in the Agreement on the Privileges and Immunities of the Council of Arab Economic Unity.
The AUCE has its own administrative and financial independence.
