This morning in the foreign press: Gas hub musings, an interview with Khazenly CEO Mohamed Younes and a history of Cairo through literature

This morning in the foreign press: The MoU we recently inked with Israel to boost gas exports to the EU could consolidate our position as the region’s energy hub, Lynx Senior Advisor Karim Haggag and Economic Policy Analyst Nadine Elnashar write for business platform Brink. The region could potentially supply 20% of Europe’s gas needs, and Egypt “presents the most reliable route for exporting Eastern Mediterranean gas,” the piece reads.
