EGYPT TO MANUFACTURE OF 30 MILLION CLOTH MASKS PER MONTH

The Egyptian minister of trade and industry Nevine Gamea has revealed the government plans to manufacture around 30 million cloth masks a month to meet local demands.

Production of masks will begin in the next few days due to increasing COVID danger in Africa, with 8 million fabric cloth masks to be manufactured in the first phase. These will be supplied to the Authority for Unified Procurement, Medical Supply and Technology Management (AUPP), who in turn will provide them to state agencies.

As per the government, this project will offer the domestic industry an opportunity to become a major centre for fabric mask manufacturing, especially in light of the increasing global demand for these types of masks. The raw materials needed for the manufacturing of these masks are already available in the country.

The Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency (MSMEDA) of the government have also prepared an inventory of small textile and garment factories that it has funded since 2015. The ministry aims to link these factories with large ones as part of the value chains in this industry, which contributes to maximizing the benefit from these production capacities and then maintaining existing labour in these factories.
