An important meeting dealing with the Egyptian economy and the prospects of commercial relations between France and Egypt will take place in Paris Tuesday March 27, at the premises of Ubifrance, the French Agency for International Business Development, in presence of several personalities and managers of French enterprises that are interested by the Egyptian market.
