Qatar and Egypt team up for Port Construction

People who are employed spend a lot more money than those who do not. That’s as basic an economic lesson as you can get. In fact that boils down more to common sense than economics. Based on that little tidbit of info, we’d be safe to say that 1 million newly employed people will spend a lot more than if they were not. 6 zeros behind any number look good and  that’s exactly what a new agreement between Egypt and Qatar aims at accomplishing.

EgyptThe Sands of Time are Moving….

…and on the continents of Asia and Africa, they are ticking off dollar signs as fast as they are seconds. According to Qatar’s Minister of State for International Corporation, Egypt and Qatar just signed a new agreement for Qatar to build be new facilities in the ports of Port Said and Alexandria, Egypt.

After leading a delegation to Egypt, the Minister said there will also be bilateral cooperation in establishing two investment companies in Africa, with one of them focused on Sudan. The Minister said that the two sides would draw up a plan to carry out their agreements and set a time frame for the establishments of the ports.

Qatar News Agency published comments in which he said, 1m job opportunities would be created by the Port Said port project with another 200,000 jobs as a result of the Alexandria proposal.

He also added that a group of Qatari businessmen would visit Egypt next month to look for more investment opportunities.
