Industry arose in Egypt since the ancient Egyptian civilization. The ancient Egyptians knew how to extract metals such as copper, silver, and gold, and they succeeded in melting and manufacturing them. They knew how to make machinery, agricultural tools, military equipment, the ceramics industry, the shipbuilding industry, the linen textile industry, and the oil pressing industry. They excelled in making jewelry encrusted with precious stones. Antiquities displayed in historical museums highlight the precision of ancient Egyptian craftsmen and the beauty of their crafts.

In the modern era, Egypt witnessed an industrial renaissance in the 19th century at the hands of Muhammad Ali, whose era witnessed the establishment of a major industrial base, which included the textile industry, the sugar industry, oil pressing, and rice mills. Military industries flourished, and a shipyard and factories for preparing chemical materials were established.

At the end of his conversation with us, Zaghloul addressed sincere words coming from the heart to the political leadership regarding all the tangible achievements on the ground, starting with the giant national road networks that have now connected Egypt’s governorates to each other from all directions, which contributed to the ease and speed of the movement of goods transportation, which led to saving time. And the effort, as well as the New Republic Project, which was launched starting from the New Administrative Capital, as well as the presidential initiatives that would ensure the provision of a decent life for the Egyptian citizen.

All greetings and appreciation to Mr. President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi for his continued support and support for small and medium enterprises, and for standing beside the investor and manufacturer in providing all facilities, starting with the Central Bank’s initiative, the “5% Initiative,” which served as a lifeline during the spread of the Corona crisis in the country, and without it, our investments would not have grown. Or at least we preserved it. We say and address the sources of frustration and despair, the spreaders of chaos, and the promoters of false allegations pursued by every corrupt person who does not love his country, that you will not undermine the determination of the Egyptians, nor will you diminish their love and belonging to their dear homeland, Egypt.

We are with the political leadership wholeheartedly, and may God protect our Egypt, its dear leader, and its proud people. Long live Egypt.
