Why exhibit? Egypt enjoys a privileged geographical position making it a candidate for the role of hub for Africa and the Middle East and has launched a series of major infrastructural development projects, such as the doubling of the Suez Canal. Thanks to free trade agreements signed with many countries, Egypt also offers zero duty export opportunities. in particular, the Agadir Agreement (2004) established a free trade area that includes not only Egypt but other Mediterranean Arab countries (Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia), while the establishment of Comesa (Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa created in 1994) sees Egypt rank as a preferential trading partner with 18 other African countries (Burundi, Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sudan, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe). Many Egyptian firms are interested in joint ventures or business agreements with international partners seeking to operate in Egypt and, through Egypt, also in Africa and Maghreb precisely by taking advantage of the unique opportunities offered by the customs and fiscal regime.
Why visit? MS Africa & Middle East combine the entire natural stone chain, from stone quarrying and processing to quarry and construction site machinery and vehicles, through to the finished product: excellence in the building field, in terms of materials, know-how and technologies will find a qualified audience of buyers including architects and interior designers, construction companies, distributors, rental, professionals in the quarrying world and earth moving equipment from many countries.
