4. Investment in Metal Industries
Egypt has approved plans to invest approximately $94 million in new metal industrial projects during fiscal 2023-2024. These investments, led by the state-owned Metallurgical Industries Holding Company, aim to fund new projects and expand production lines, further strengthening Egypt's position in the global metal manufacturing sector.

5. Collaboration in Energy Sector
Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy Mohamed Shaker discussed enhancing cooperation with Siemens officials in Germany, emphasizing the importance of leveraging Siemens' expertise in electricity and energy. This partnership reflects Egypt's efforts to advance its energy infrastructure and meet growing demand sustainably.

6. Localization Efforts in Technology Manufacturing

Egypt continues to attract foreign investment in manufacturing facilities, with Chinese and Russian companies establishing new factories in the country. Chinese company Vanward commenced the construction of a factory to manufacture household appliances, while Russian EV manufacturer Concordia announced plans to set up an EV components manufacturing factory. These initiatives contribute to job creation and technology transfer, supporting Egypt's industrial growth agenda.

8. Adjustments in Electricity Prices
To reduce power subsidies and address economic challenges, the Egyptian government announced adjustments in electricity prices effective January 1st, 2024. While these adjustments aim to rationalize energy consumption and improve fiscal sustainability, businesses should anticipate potential impacts on industrial production costs.

Overall, Egypt's engineering sector is witnessing dynamic growth driven by strategic investments, technological innovation, and international collaborations. These developments underscore the country's commitment to achieving sustainable industrial development and economic prosperity.
