Egypt to Export 60 Double-Decker Buses to United Kingdom for First Time

Egypt’s vehicle manufacturer MCV will manufacture and export 60 double-decker buses to the United Kingdom, Minister of Trade and Industry Tarek Kabil announced on Sunday.

According to Kabil, the new line of vehicle manufacturing “shows trust in the Egyptian industry” from foreign markets.

MCV’s factories produce 8,000 to 10,000 double-decker buses annually, of which 5,000 to 8,000 are exported to a number of countries, including the Netherlands and Hong Kong.

Kabil’s comments came during a tour of industrial complexes in New Salahia and El-Obour cities, which also saw the minister launching a number of new factories in the area.

The new deal, which marks the first time for Egypt to export the buses London tourism is famous for, is a shift from Egypt’s prior dealings with public transportation manufacturing. In 2014, the Transport Authority announced that 600 buses would be supplied by the United Arab Emirates, with half of the fleet manufactured in the UAE and the other half in Egypt.
