Chinese industrial development giant TEDA Holdings has officially kickoff the construction of Cady textile factory in Egypt. The announcement was made in a statement issued by the General Authority of the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone). The new facility known as “Cady Egypt” would cost a total of $60 million and occupy 14.5 hectares. 14 percent of all exports of goods from Egypt are produced by the clothing and textiles sector. The government of the nation has been attempting for a number of years to foster an atmosphere that will encourage private investment in the industry. 

Furthermore, President of the SCZone Walid Gamal El-Din claims that $150 million in sales should be generated annually by the plant’s production, which will be allocated to export to the European and American markets.
