President Abdel Fattah El Sisi directed Sunday developing a flexible and appropriate marketing policy for the Suez Canal, coping with the global economic conditions.
Sisi’s remarks came during his meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli, presidential adviser for national projects Sherif Ismail, president of Suez Canal Authority (SCA) Osama Rabei, President of the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone), and others, presidential spokesman Bassam Radi said.
The new marketing policy should take into account achieving balance between the rates of the maritime traffic in the canal and the negative impacts for the global outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, in addition to including attractive services to the transiting vessels, especially in the developed and upgraded Ain Sokhna, eastern Port Said, and Berenice ports.
The meeting also reviewed the performance of SCA, and the projects of SCZone, he added.
