Egypt in the News on 13 March 2019

It is a quiet morning for Egypt in the international press, with no story being picked up en masse. Among the few pieces worth noting:

  • The Israeli press is out with several stories on the benefits of the Camp David Accords, which Israeli President Reuven Rivlin noted in a speech include cross-border energy, water, and tourism cooperation.
  • Egypt’s energy sector growth is a success story that should be emulated in South Africa, particularly through diversification, the creation of a gas economy and partnerships within government and the public and private sectors, argues South African publication Engineering News.
  • As the campaign to boycott new car purchases continues, Reuters is out with a piece looking at the current state of Egypt’s car market.
