Abofrekha further told Amwal Al Ghad that the council is conducting studies to solve the main obstacles facing the Egyptian engineering industry exports.
The council is set to carry out expansions in Africa for the coming three year, in coordination with the Egyptian Exporters Association – Expolink, which is responsible for organising exhibitions for Egyptian productions in African markets.
