Total Poland-Egypt trade hit $500 million in 2016: diplomat

Trade relations between Poland and Egypt recorded around $500 million in 2016, said acting Polish ambassador to Egypt Justyna Burzynska on Monday.

Poland’s exports to Egypt had reached $110 million approximately, while imports from Egypt registered $390 million in 2016, Burzynska further told Amwal Al Ghad on the sidelines of a conference in Cairo.

There are two delegations of total 15 Polish firms currently visiting Egypt, including 10 firms exploring the available investment opportunities in the Suez Canal’s economic zone scheme, the ambassador said.

Burzynska also referred to some Polish firms that are keen to invest in the Egyptian food industries sector, notably in dairy production, expecting to witness a new joint Egyptian Polish dairy farm at the end of the current year.
