Why you should shift your Sourcing to Egypt? Webinar

Representatives from 70 American companies and several Egyptian exporters attended the webinar.

During the webinar, speakers from the Egyptian and Israeli government and private sectors shed light on the QIZ protocol, and explained how US buyers can benefit from importing duty-free garments from Egypt.
