Suez Canal Economic Zone was back on the airwaves last night

No major story dominated the airwaves last night. Suez Canal Authority boss Mohab Mamish led a visit to the Suez Canal Economic Zone yesterday that included a delegation from the House of Representatives’ Industry Committee. The delegation visited various factories and projects, including glass and steel factories as well as the Chinese zone and the Ain Sokhna port. Al Hayah Al Youm had the story (watch, runtime: 01:54).

A recent Business Insider report that listed Egypt as the number one destination bn'aires are traveling to in 2019 also earned some airtime on Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 03:05).
