Egypt’s Export Council for Printing, Packaging, Books, Literary and Artistic Works has announced that eight companies will be part of a trade mission touring Morocco from 15 to 19 May, 2023, as part of its plan to promote the sector’s products abroad.
The Export Council’s Executive Director Sara Ibrahim revealed in a statement that Egypt’s exports of packaging and paper products achieved a growth of 30% during 2022, at $56.4 million, as against $43.3 million in the year-earlier period, confirming that Morocco is one of the most important markets in the Arab region that must be focused on in the coming period.
She emphasized that Egypt’s presence in the Moroccan market and creation of prospects for joint cooperation are within the council’s plans. The mission also aims to find opportunities to exchange visions and experiences with specialists from both sides in order to stimulate trade and export in the printing and packaging sector.
Ibrahim added that the council’s delegation will discuss ways to boost the sector’s exports, noting that there were as many as 105 Egyptian companies exporting packaging and paper products to Morocco, including 15 whose exports exceeded one million dollars in 2022.
