Trade and Industry Minister Nevine Gamae has said her Ministry is keen on boosting cooperation and partnership with all international organizations, particularly the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), with the aim to implement development programs that would also contribute to creating jobs for youth.
Gamae was speaking during a meeting with acting regional director of UNIDO Bassel el Khateeb earlier Sunday Jan 19.
The meeting took up upgrading a partnership program between the Egyptian government and the organization meant to boost comprehensive and sustainable industrial development.
Gamae stressed keenness on reaching an integrated program that would help hone the competitiveness of the Egyptian industry on local and foreign markets.
The program focuses on the textile, food, leather, furniture, chemical and electronic industries, she said.
The program will be implemented in coordination with government bodies concerned, as well as the private and banking sectors and international donors, Gamae added.
