The value of commerce between Egypt and COMESA countries hit to $75.1 million in the first quarter of 2001, up from $58.6 million in the first quarter of the same year, a 28 percent growth, Al-Ahram reported.
The Egyptian Minister of Foreign Commerce Yossuf Botrous Ghali is currently conducting intensive negotiations with COMESA member countries for altering bilateral trade exchange among members.
