Head of the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone) Yehia Zaki said on Monday that the political leadership in Egypt paid much attention to the zone to have an influential role on the map of global investments.

He received a delegation of Egyptian expats and key investors, who will take part in the “Egypt Can” conference, kicking off on 15-17 October in Suez governorate, in the presence of Immigration Minister Nabila Makram and Planning Minister Hala El-Said.

Zaki said the Egyptian state worked to achieve that goal by providing a favourable atmosphere for investments, removing obstacles and facilitating free flow of information necessary for projects.

He added that the SCZone, one of the national projects, was a promising zone that aimed to turn into a global logistics hub to contribute to boosting Egyptian and global economy.
