In early March, in cooperation with a team of colleagues from Pegas Nonwovens and local partners we realized the official ceremony, capping the first stage of the successful expansion of the world’s leading nonwovens producer on the African continent. Invitation of CEO Pegas Nonwowens Mgr. Frantisek Rezac received investment minister of Egyptian government Salman Ashraf, Czech Ambassador in Cairo Mrs. Veronika Kuchyňová Šmigolová, representatives of government agencies GAFI and other honored guests. The ceremony, which attracted a lot of interest in local media, culminating by a symbolic ribbon-cutting ceremony right at the first production lines Pegas installed in Cairo. After the official part of the program the local chefs let stand their art to a great Egyptian cuisine in a party tent, which pleasantly blinded in March to always strong Egyptian sun.
