Egypt: 12 Percent Increase in Non-Petroleum Exports

The Egyptian non-petroleum exports achieved a remarkable growth hitting LE11.260 billion in January, against LE10.28 billion during the same time last year.

This came in a report by Industry and Foreign Trade Ministry received by Minister Hatem Saleh on Monday.

The minister attributed the increase to the rise in exports of a number of export councils.

This is due to a remarkable increase in exports of the furniture sector, foodstuff industries and Leather and footwear.
