Mission for Growth: Seizing mutual benefit for businesses in the EU and Egypt
Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani is in Egypt on 13 and 14 November 2012, accompanied by a large business delegation composed of representatives of 102 European companies and industry associations from 13 Member States. Collectively they represent approximately three million employees and €700 billion in turnover. This mission is part of the new series of "Missions for Growth" to help European enterprises, in particular small and medium sized enterprises to better profit from fast growing emerging international markets. It is the largest such "Mission for Growth" headed by Vice President Tajani to date, quadrupling the usual participation numbers.
