Trade between the Czech Republic and Egypt

In the field of trade Egypt has been a traditional partner for the Czech Republic. Equipment from the Czech Republic to Egypt was successfully delivered mainly for power generation and distribution units, for irrigation systems and water treatment plants and there are many plants for sugar cane processing in Upper Egypt completely delivered and installed by Czech manufacturers. Nowadays, you can see Škoda cars running in streets of Cairo and other Egyptian cities. On the other hand, Egyptian cotton and textile products are well known in the Czech Republic.

However, nowadays trade exchange between the Czech Republic and Egypt is still beyond tradition and existing potential. Many changes in economic development of both countries caused a decrease in their trade exchange during last few years and a lot has to be done to improve it.
