The UNIDO Regional office in Cairo was established in 1999, in collaboration with the Ministry of Trade and Industry. Over the years, UNIDO has been supporting Egypt to achieve social and economic growth through the promotion of industrial development for employment generation and environmental sustainability.
Leveraging its extensive experience worldwide, UNIDO provides technical expertise and capacity-building measures to help Egypt combat development challenges. UNIDO's assistance renders a range of environmental, social and economic benefits and unleashes the potential for inclusive and sustainable industrial development.
UNIDO is currently engaged with the Government of Egypt and its civil society in initiatives that are related to agro-industry development, human security, small and medium enterprise development, job creation, youth employment, energy efficiency and renewable energies, implementation of Montreal Protocol activities, and promotion of green industries.
