Shoukry meets UN Special Envoy for Syria to discuss political resolution

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met yesterday with UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura to discuss developments in the country, according to a ministry statement. Shoukry confirmed that Egypt would continue to push for a diplomatic solution to the crisis.

Meanwhile, Egyptian companies continue to press ahead with lucrative reconstruction projects. Among these is Global Consolidated Contractors (GCC), which is looking to carry out post-war reconstruction projects in Syria and increase its existing ones in Libya as part of expansion plans, CEO Moustafa El Hassan tells Al Mal. The company is already in talks with the Transport Ministry to establish a 4 sqm logistical zone near the Egypt-Libya border town of Salloum, selling construction materials like cement and tiles.
