Changes to Egypt's food safety law could make it easier for exporters to work with it, Investment Minister Osama Saleh told The Hindu Business Line in an interview published on its website on Tuesday.

Nasser au Pakistan: une visite hautement symbolique (& vidéo)

24 avril 1955. Le sommet de Bandung s’achève. Il a rassemblé toutes les grandes figures de l’indépendance du Tiers-monde: l’égyptien Gamal Abdel Nasser, l’indien Nehru, l’indonésien Soekarno…(...)

 

Ce n’est pas un anodin si le président égyptien de l’époque Gamel Abdel Nasser – héraut du nationalisme arabe – s’envole la même année pour le Pakistan.

 

Plus de quatre décennie plus tard, que vient chercher le président Morsi en Asie? Un partenaire économique? Un Frère? C’est la première visite officielle d’un président égyptien depuis près de 50 ans.

Egypt-actus's insight:

Ties between Egypt and India will be of great value in the coming years, an Indian newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Mursi told The Hindu newspaper that he puts high hopes on his visit to India and is interested in the successful Indian experiences in the fields of education, information technology, and eradicating poverty.

Mursi is surrounded by a political storm likely to be stirred by elements of the former regime to target the first democratically elected Islamist president, The Hindu stated.

In an interview with the newspaper, the Egyptian president discussed the Nahda project which was his electoral campaign programme and explained that it guarantees democracy and social justice and includes short-term and long-term plans as well.

'Egypt should be India's gateway to Africa'

n an interview with IANS on the sidelines of the first India-Egypt Economic Forum on Wednesday, Saleh said : " We are proposing that India consider Egypt as the gateway to the African continent for deepening and increasing the benefits of an old relationship."

The inauguration of an India-Egypt Business Council organised by premier Indian industry bodies - FICCI, CII and Assocham - is a major step in this direction. Saleh is here as part of Egypt's General Authority for Investment and Free Zones mission visiting India with the country's first democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi.

The Egyptian minister is promoting his country as an investment destination at a time when India looks to make a quantum jump in its economic engagement with the continent, particularly with north and western Africa, as well as achieving the full potential of its business relations with Egypt.

"The levels of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Egypt has dropped from 25 percent to nine percent, especially in this period when the country is going through a political transition. Our aim is for FDI to pick up to levels of around 20 percent," said Saleh.

India, Egypt to step up defence ties

India, Egypt to step up defence ties | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

n a sign of thaw in ties, India and Egypt agreed to intensify their defence relationship which had remained in a limbo while Cairo moved away from New Delhi after a period of intense cooperation on the international stage in the 1950s.

“We also agreed to enhance our defence exchanges and cooperation,” said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after a summit meeting with the democratically elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy.

The two sides also signed seven agreements but most of them are intended to be the building blocks for a robust relationship in future. As Dr. Singh noted: “The agreements that we have signed today are a clear manifestation of our desire to impart a new dynamism to our relationship.”

Mursi Leaves Unrest Behind in Visit to Pakistan and India

Mursi Leaves Unrest Behind in Visit to Pakistan and India | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

(....) Speaking to reporters after his meeting with the Indian PM, Mursi said that he wanted Egypt to be the “hub of Indian exports to Africa.”  His Indian counterpart said that “the agreements that we have signed today are a clear manifestation of our desire to impart a new dynamism to our relationship.”

Before embarking on his south Asia tour, President Mursi left Cairo amid tempestuous circumstances. The office of the Muslim Brotherhood’s guidance bureau, located in the Mokattam district of southern Cairo, has recently been the scene of two days of violent clashes. Security sources revealed that the violence, which broke out between security forces and demonstrators opposed to the Brotherhood’s rule three days ago, came to an end Sunday after dozens had been injured, some of them seriously.

 

Now, Mokattam district is experiencing a state of uneasy calm. Intensive security reinforcements have been deployed to guard the Brotherhood’s bureau, while plain clothed security personnel are patrolling the district.

Even as preparations are on for the visit of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy to New Delhi, the two countries explored their future economic potential during a trade committee meeting where India hoped it would emerge as preferred source of high quality and competitively-priced products in different areas, from pharmaceuticals and vaccines to information and communications technology.

The India-Egypt Joint Trade Committee held its first meeting in Cairo Sunday.

Coming on the eve of the visit this month of Morsy to India, the two sides reviewed the existing position with regard to bilateral trade, examine issues that need to be resolved and explore the future potential in new areas of cooperation, said a press release.

(...) Both sides expressed satisfaction that bilateral trade between India and Egypt has shown impressive growth despite the ongoing global economic slowdown.They noted that trade has grown from $2.5 billion in 2006-07 to $4.3 billion in 2011-12. The trade balance currently lies in Egypt's favour with its exports to India touching $2.3 billion as against imports of a little under $2 billion.

The spirit of Ghandi in Tahrir Square

The spirit of Ghandi in Tahrir Square | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Two years ago the uprising in Egypt made headlines all over the world. The recurring chant ofSalmeyya (peaceful) that reverberated through Tahrir Square reminded many of the non-violent message of Ghandi. It also was the inspiration for the poster design contest organised by the Indian embassy in Cairo.

An exhibition of the best entries opens tonight after an awards ceremony. Daily News Egypt spoke with Indian Ambassador Navdeep Suri; the man whose vision led to a contest that drew submissions from India, Egypt, and other African countries.

Ambassador Suri watched the images of the uprising in Tahrir Square from Delhi and was struck by the chants of salmeyya.

“The message resonated with me and I felt I was watching Ghandi’s principles being played out in Tahrir Square,” ambassador Suri said.

Egypt-actus's insight:

Ambassador Suri hopes that the messages on the posters will serve as a reminder of the days of the revolution. “It is a gentle way to remind everyone that a peaceful and non-violent approach is best.

“All that has been happening in Egypt has been relatively peaceful, especially in the context of the violence in the region and the rest of the world and it is important to focus on the positive. The contest and the exhibition are a tribute to the spirit of the revolution.”

A jury consisting of Salah El Meleigy, head of the Fine Arts sector, the artist Mohamed Ablah from Egypt and Sudhir Horo, head of a leading Indian design firm have judged all entries based on a strict list of criteria. All entries were given a number during the judging process to ensure anonymity of the designers. The exhibition will feature the best entries of all three categories; divided over 25 Egyptian entries, 25 Indian entries and 10 designs based on the drawings of the children.

The first prize in the Egyptian category is trip to India that includes a workshop at India’s National Institute of Design and second, third and fourth place will receive EGP 3,000, EGP 2,000 and EGP 1,000 respectively. The prizes in the children’s category are EGP 3,000 for first place, EGP 2,000 for second place and EGP 1,000 for third place.

The images of many of the posters are powerful and inventive, they are visually strong, different in approach but they make a cohesive exhibition. There are plans to display the exhibition during future activities organised by the Indian embassy throughout Egypt, and when an appropriate occasion presents itself the exhibition will travel to India as well.

The amount of entries and the overall quality of the work has been a pleasant surprise. “We had no idea what to expect but the response has been great,” ambassador Suri said. “It reminds us that we are not that different and proves once again that salmeyya is not fashionable, it is the truth.”
