Egypt: allow industries based on natural gas to work as free zones system

he Egyptian Economic Ministerial Committee agreed in its meeting chaired by the Prime Minister to proceed with the necessary legislative amendments to allow projects for industries based on natural gas to be licensed as one of the production inputs, especially the fertilizer and petrochemical industries, in order to work in the free zones system.

That decision to license industries based on natural gas as one of the production inputs to operate in the free zones system comes to encourage investment, operation, and export, especially since recent discoveries have led to the availability of large quantities of natural gas.
