It was chaired by Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, and Amr Nassar, Minister of Trade and Industry of the Arab Republic of Egypt.
"More than 5 years of hard work of our company in Egypt enables us to speak about the effectiveness of the established communications, high trust of the customer and, of course, about the desire not to rest on our oars, but to move further.”- said the CEO of Azimut JSC Asker Saidov.
During the meeting, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Azimut JSC and the Arab Organization for Industrialization.
The Russian Federation had been invited by the Arab Republic of Egypt as a partner country for the development of high-tech production in the territory of the inviting party. The "Big industrial week" was the first analogue of the international industrial exhibition INNOPROM abroad. More than 100 largest innovative enterprises took part in the exhibition and business part of the programme, which confirms high interest in cooperation.
