Alexandria T&C Cluster - Egypt

The Alexandria region plays a strategic role in the Egyptian T/C sector.

Historically, It is the shipping point for exports to Europe and America (together about 75% of all T/C exports), it hosts the Alexandria Cotton Exporters’ Association (Alcotexa) and the very large majority of the registered Export Agents, Alexandria is an important trade/commercial area also for the domestic market as well as a manufacturing area In addition, Alexandria University includes the reputed Textile and Weaving Engineering Faculty(est. 1960) and the region (governorate).

Recently, a further development stemmed from the establishment of the QIZ in Borj el Arab where about 200 T/C companies, mainly ready made garments (RMG) manufacturers, are located.

To sum up: the Alexandria T/C cluster is a key area for production (including the Giza Cotton production of the Alexandria Governorate), commerce and competence development.

Finally, it is fully integrated with the whole Egyptian T/C sector.
