"Le parti égyptien Al-Wasat et l’AKP sont jumeaux"

"Le parti égyptien Al-Wasat et l’AKP sont jumeaux" | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Dans un entretien accordé à Zaman, le président du parti égyptien Al-Wasat issu des Frères musulmans, évoque la proximité idéologique de sa formation avec l’AKP (Parti pour la justice et le développement ou AKP  - Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi - de centre-droit, au pouvoir en Turquie depuis 2002), y compris sur la question laïque. «Nous comprenons la manière dont Erdogan la conçoit», a ainsi déclaré Abou Elela Mady.

Abou Elela Mady, le président d’Al-Wasat, un parti égyptien conservateur modéré, a comparé l’idéologie de son parti à celle de l’AKP au pouvoir en Turquie, ajoutant que leurs parcours étaient pratiquement les mêmes. «L’expérience du parti Al-Wasat est très comparable à celle de l’AKP. Du point de vue de leur formation comme du point de vue de leur idéologie, les deux partis sont très proches ; ils sont comme des jumeaux», a déclaré M. Mady. Branche modérée du mouvement des Frères musulmans constituée en parti autonome en 1996, Al-Wasat se félicite des progrès politiques et économique accomplis par l’AKP en Turquie. Le président du parti a ainsi déclaré que le Parti de la justice et du développement avait fourni de grands efforts pour développer la Turquie économiquement et politiquement, ajoutant qu’Al-Wasat a besoin de temps pour être aussi fort que l’est aujourd’hui l’AKP en Turquie. «Il y a une grande similitude dans la manière dont les deux partis ont été fondés. Par exemple, l’AKP est historiquement issu du mouvement Milli Görüs [Vision nationale, ndlr] fondé par Necmettin Erbakan ; de même, Al-Wasat plonge ses racines dans le mouvement des Frères musulmans», a déclaré Abou Elela Mady. La laïcité a mauvaise réputation en EgypteEn ce qui concerne les déclarations du Premier ministre turc Recep Tayyip Erdogan, qui a appelé les Egyptiens à adopter une constitution laïque, une initiative qui a été fortement critiqué par les Frères musulmans, la plus grande formation politique du pays, le président d’Al-Wasat a déclaré que son parti n’a pas de problème avec la laïcité. «Nous n’avons aucun problème avec cela, parce que nous comprenons la manière dont Erdogan la conçoit. L’un des fondateurs de notre parti a écrit un grand nombre d’ouvrages sur la laïcité et sur la sécularisation partielle du politique. Nous ne voyons pas dans la laïcité une négation de la religion, mais un moyen de séparer la religion de la politique», a déclaré Abou Elala Mady. «La laïcité est mal vue par les Egyptiens, parce qu’ils croient qu’elle nie la religion. Ce n’est pas le cas d’Al-Wasat, pour qui elle constitue une nouvelle voie au sein du système politique», a déclaré M. Mady. http://www.zamanfrance.fr/article/parti-gyptien-alwasat-l-akp-sont-jumeaux

President Abdullah Gul has paid a visit to Egypt at the invitation of his counterpart Mohamed Morsi earlier this week while attending the 12th summit of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

"Egypt has been facing economic and social problems as well as political polarization at home while Turkey is concerned with the spillover effect of Syrian crisis and governance issues in Iraq," Mehmet Seyfettin Erol, a professor of international relations at Ankara-based Gazi University, told Xinhua by phone, stressing that these problems.

Turkey has thrown a loan worth 2 billion U.S. dollars last year to Egypt to support country's ailing economy amid rampant unemployment and sharp reduction in government revenues, and Cairo is exploring ways to learn from Turkey's successful experience in economy growth and trying to lure Turkey in trade and investment (...)

Turkey grocery chain BIM plans stores in Egypt

Turkey grocery chain BIM plans stores in Egypt | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Turkish discount grocer BIM will expand this year into Egypt, where food prices have risen sharply since the fall of Hosni Mubarak in February 2011.

Chief Operating Officer Galip Aykac said on Wednesday the company will open one store there in April and aims to be operating a chain of more than 30 by the end of the year, having identified a gap in a market that lacked a well developed retail sector.

Egypt has been scarred by unrest since Mubarak was ousted in a popular uprising and the country is pressing for an International Monetary Fund loan to shore up its battered economy.

Under a 270 million lira ($150 million) investment plan for Turkey, BIM will open 375 stores in its domestic market this year, Chief Financial Officer Haluk Dortluoglu said. It will also open 50 new stores this year in Morocco, where it already has a presence.

He said BIM aims to boost sales by 17-18 percent this year and was open to acquisitions. He gave no further details, but Aykac said the firm had ambitions to become a global retailer.

(...) The Turkish retail market is growing rapidly along with consumers' purchases power. Per capita spending is expected to have risen from $7,350 in 2011 to more than $10,000 by 2015, according to a Deloitte report.

BUSINESS - Turkish goods bang into Egyptian taxes

BUSINESS - Turkish goods bang into Egyptian taxes | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Turkish agricultural products lag behind Greek goods in the Egyptian market due to high customs duties and a lack of promotions, an official from an agricultural federation has said.

“Greek products, which are exempted from customs duties, dominate the Egyptian market but consumers want to buy quality Turkish goods even though their price is higher,” said Halil Öztürk, the head of the Turkish Fruit and Vegetable Commissioners’ Federation.

 

Egypt is an important export market for Turkey as there is a huge demand for Turkish goods, so exporters want the Turkish government to settle customs duties with Cairo, he said.

In his remarks, the exporters’ representative said Turkish producers could ship their products to the Egyptian cities Cairo or Alexandria by first shipping them through Syria. He asserted they can not export the goods directly to Egypt also because of lacking the opportunity to promote Turkish goods in Egypt market.

 

Öztürk said there was actually a huge demand for Turkish fruits and vegetables in Egypt, with apples at the top of the list. He said they had reached out to Egyptian tradesmen and invited them to Turkey, agreeing to export 5,000 tons of apples in principle but the deal could not be signed due to a 21 percent customs duty.
