Welspun in Egypt, pledges to preserve reputation of Egyptian cotton

Representatives from India’s Welspun met with ministers Tarek Kabil and Ashraf El Sharkawy to improve relations with Egypt and pledge to preserve the reputation of Egyptian cotton globally, Al Masry Al Youm reported. Welspun is embroiled in a scandal after having supplied cotton mislabelled as Egypt to retailers in the US. Group Managing director Rajesh Mandawewala said the company has begun internal investigations to ensure proper quality control. Welspun is also looking to partner with the Public Enterprise Ministry’s programme to redevelop Egypt’s textiles sector, Ahram Gate says.
