The Federation of Egyptian Industries (FEI) will organize a business delegation to Uganda and Tanzania in April that will include 20 different industries, Sherif el-Gabaly, Chairman of Cooperation with Africa Committee at FEI said Sunday.

He said that the delegation that was sent to Rwanda last week was a success. It included seven businessmen from different industries and resulted in the agreement with the Rwandan side on conducting business in the fields of food industries, packaging, printing and chemicals.

The delegation met with 150 Rwandan companies working in the fields of renewable energy, building materials, engineering industries, leather, printing and readymade garments.

Gebaly said that the delegation was the first in a number of delegations that will be organized to various African states during 2018.
He added that the committee will organize two delegations to a number of Western African countries by June.

The organization of these delegations comes as a first step to implement what the Cooperation with Africa Committee and the African delegations have agreed upon during the Africa 2017 Forum that was held in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh in December.
