Egypt will hold its first specialised exhibition for roads, transport and energy projects from 4 to 6 November in Cairo.

EgyTech will show the latest technologies in the field of transportation, roads, bridges and energy and electricity projects and offer solutions to reduce frequent traffic accidents in Egypt.

Around 8,500 road accidents took place in Egypt in 2018, down 23.6 percent from 11,098 in 2017, according to data by Egypt's official statistics agency CAPMAS.

Egypt has been pursuing a multi-million-pound plan to develop and expand the country's road networks in recent years.

The event will bring together numerous local and global firms to presents their projects in road construction and maintenance, systems and equipment for parking lots and tunnels, road safety, emergency equipment systems, and water and environment technologies.

"The exhibition is not only limited to offering products, but also intends to come up with initiatives and real radical solutions to traffic problems, transportation, roads, etc. This is to serve Egyptian citizens and encourage foreign investment in Egypt which benefits the Egyptian economy," Amr Shawky, an economist and chairman of EgyTech Engineering Company, said, according to a press statement sent to Ahram Online.

"This event is a great opportunity for all companies of all fields and sizes, whether emerging or well known, to present their products and services in the market and to open the door for local and international work," said Basma Hamaidy, General Manager of StiExpo, the co-organiser of the event.
