As part of the EU funded SwitchMed programme, UNIDO supports industries in Egypt through the MED TEST II project to produce resource efficient, competitive and with a better environmental performance.

On the 26th June, 28 Egyptian companies from the food, chemical and textile sectors will present their savings on a final event in Cairo showing the potential of resource efficiency for the Egyptian economy.

The MED TEST II project has once again revealed that resource efficiency is an efficient tool for the economy to help companies lower their production costs and save valuable resources to other parts of the society.
