Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli stressed on Sunday 13/10/2019 that the government is serious in its plan to replace diesel-fueled microbuses with natural gas-powered ones.
Madbouli gave the remarks during his meeting with chairman of Toyota Tsusho company Ichiro Kashitani, with Investment Minister Sahar Nasr attending.
Spokesman for the cabinet Nader Saad said the meeting comes as part of a series of meetings the premier is holding with representatives of micro bus production companies.
Madbouli said the replacement process should be carried out by local companies to boost the national industry.
Totota company officials, who were attending the meeting, said the company is ready to meet the Egyptian market's needs and replace old microbuses with new ones running on natural gas.
