All of this will in turn be used to better assess international markets and export opportunities for the Egyptian manufacturers. A walk-through the best practices of the European engineering industry One of the program’s highlights was a factory visit to one of the biggest manufacturers of food processing equipment in the Netherlands “Kiremko”. EEC held an in-depth dialogue with Eng. Marcel van Huisstenden – Kiremko’s Deputy Director to better understand the Engineering industry in Europe, Kiremko’s projects in Egypt and discuss the opportunities of setting up partnerships with Egyptian exporters. First, Eng. Marcel shed light on the importance of having a SMART industry, which relies on using the latest technologies and innovation in his field. He also explained the importance of having a full view of the market and how market studies and field research play a major role in that.

Marcel mentioned that: – 65% of his business is outsourced through business partners – 50% of the components comes from external suppliers The meeting concluded fruitfully by arranging to introduce Mr. Marcel to some Egyptian manufacturers on the occasion of the Council’s upcoming international marketing activities, such as Gulfood Exhibition in the UAE in October, and Interpack Exhibition in Egypt in December 2019.

The EU has allocated a grant of 950 thousand Euros for this project that is implemented over a period of 18 months. The EU- funded EEPI project will help Egyptian companies through their export journey to Europe by fostering their capacity to innovate in their products to meet European markets requirements.

Companies will then be supported in developing innovative business and product concepts, and commercializing these products in the EU market through business matchmaking with European partners. To ensure that the desired impact is realized, the project brings together experts from diverse entities, best positioned to deliver the needed support. The Engineering Export Council of Egypt (EEC) with their knowledge of the Engineering Industry and long term experience in export development programs will collaborate with Innovety LLC – an Egyptian leading innovation consulting company, the Italian Consortium ARCA who are experts in the areas of technology transfer and business innovation, and Globally Cool from the Netherlands – a company specialized in sustainable international trade development.

The project endeavours to be a success story in bringing Egyptian products much closer to sustained international presence through innovation and product adaptation, an onward and upward path for Egypt’s Engineering Industry towards global competitiveness.
