UN + Switzerland to help make our industrial zones more environmentally-friendly: The Trade and Industry Ministry has signed an agreement with the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) to develop environmentally-friendly industrial zones, it announced in a statement yesterday. The project, to be funded by the Swiss government and implemented by UNIDO, will support government efforts to improve the performance of industrial zones, and support sustainable industrial policies, said Trade and Industry Minister Nevine Gamea.

Alameda Healthcare has agreed (pdf) to enter a “value partnership” with Siemens Healthineers, which will see the German firm supply it with new medical tech, deliver clinical advisory services, train staff, and provide digital solutions to improve workflow.
