CAIRO - 19 July 2019: Representative and Director of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Regional Office in Egypt Giovanna Ceglie said UNIDO is keen to cooperate with Cairo in supporting and developing industry.
Ceglie noted that this keenness comes in light of the importance attached by the Egyptian government to this file and its key role in achieving development, increasing national income and raising exports.
The official’s remarks were made during her meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli, in the presence of Richard Dictus, the UN Resident Coordinator and United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Resident Representative in Egypt.
Ceglie added that UNIDO is keen to formulate a program with the Egyptian government to introduce this cooperation, the Cabinet’s media office said in a statement Friday.
The premier welcomed UNIDO’s stance, asserting that the government attaches special importance to the file of modernizing industry.
Madbouli also pointed out to the government’s efforts to localize industry via plans that target specific sectors, such as the engineering industries sector and the textiles one, among others
