Egypt: Industry Minister - Establishing Global Trading System 'Crucial'

Industry and Foreign Trade Minister Hatem Saleh has underlined the importance of establishing a global trading system that preserves the interests of developing countries and helps them achieve comprehensive development.

This came during his meeting with Roberto Azevedo, Brazil's candidate for the post of Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), who is currently visiting Egypt.

The world's economic policies must change to cope with the new changes affecting the global economy, Saleh said.
