China’s COSCO Company started Saturday shipping the Egyptian pavilion for the China International Import Expo that will be held in Shanghai from Nov. 5 to 10.
“The first Egyptian container that will leave the Port Said port at 22:00 pm (2000 GMT) contains handicrafts, cotton textiles, furniture, medical equipment, industrial products, souvenirs, and raw materials,” said Mohsen al-Mazahy, chairman of Port Said for Containers & Cargos Company.
The 25-day trip will pass through Singapore port before reaching China directly without stops, al-Mazahy told Xinhua.
“COSCO Shipping (Egypt) is an international transportation service provider recommended by China International Import Expo to transport the exhibits from Egypt to China,” Xie Manding, general manager of COSCO said.
“We hope to help Egypt increase shipping exports and expand the scale of trade between China and Egypt,” Xie told Xinhua.
COSCO will continue transporting all the exhibits in Egypt in the next few days, he said.
