Egypt is keen to localise modern technologies in its companies in cooperation with Egyptian and international corporates, said Morsy.

The meeting was held in accordance with presidential directives to use clean, renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuels and to localise the vehicles industry, he added.

Morsy stated that the ministry is currently working to convert 2,262 Public Transport Authority buses in Cairo and Alexandria to run on natural gas instead of diesel fuel, in cooperation with the ministries of petroleum and local development and Egypt’s Geyushi Motors.

Sun stated that the Chinese state-owned Shandong group was the main supplier of natural gas engines used in converting the Public Transport Authority’s buses in Cairo and Alexandria, adding that his group was one of the leading companies in producing eco-friendly means of transport.

The meeting was attended by Chinese Ambassador to Cairo Liao Liqiang, CEO of Egyptian Geyushi Motors Mohie Geyushi, Mohamed Salah El-Din, vice chairman and managing director of the National Authority for Military Production, and a number of Egyptian officials.

Morsy also witnessed the signing of a cooperation protocol between Sun, Salah El-Din, and Geyushi to produce natural gas cylinders.

The Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea had earlier attended the signing of two cooperation agreements between Geyushi Motors and Shandong in the field of bus manufacturing and the distribution of generators, engines, and power stations.
