The Swiss-Egyptian Business Association (SEBA) is planning a textile roadshow to Switzerland to promote the textile sector in Egypt (garments and machinery) and to know the requirements of the Swiss market, SEBA‘s Executive Director, Marwa Taher, said.
“We believe that the Egyptian economy holds great potential for more investments and business expansion. In fact, Egypt is currently looked at as a gateway to the African market, as discussions have been already been opened to assess potential opportunities for Swiss investments in Africa, seen though their current presence in the Egyptian market,” Taher stated.
