Egypt's Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli chaired a meeting to review development efforts in the Damietta Furniture City (DFC) project.

The meeting featured appearances by Finance Minister Mohamed Maait, Industry Minister Ahmed Samir, Damietta Governor Manal Awad, and respective officials.

During the meeting, Madbouli noted that the development of the city comes under President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s directives to enhance the furniture industry to be able to compete regionally and internationally, create more job opportunities, and increase exports and national income.

The meeting tackled the implementation and development phases of the city under the highest standards of quality in terms of manufacturing, logistics, and services, according to a statement.

The new city is one of the largest specialized industrial zones in the field of furniture industry in the Middle East and is expected to put the Egyptian furniture industry on the world map by using international expertise.

The DFC is established on an area of 331 feddans and contributes to providing many jobs, including direct and indirect employment opportunities that are expected to hit 100,000.
