On November 27th, 2017, @the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation

(AICS) participated to the opening of @CREATIVE HUB EGYPT. The event was enriched by the presence of the Minister of Trade and Industry H.E. Tarek Kabil who was given a tour by the Executive Director of the Industrial Modernization Centre – IMC, Dr Ahmed Taha to see the premises and all the facilities designers will have at their disposal. CREATIVE HUB EGYPT is a place where Designers, Startups and young Entrepreneurs can meet, work and share ideas, information and experiences to enhance their creative potential. CREATIVE HUB EGYPT not only is a co-working space where people can use state-of-the-art machineries such as 3D Printers, but they can also benefit from a direct access to market. As a matter of fact, the ideal location chosen, in the same premises of CREATIVE EGYPT (http://creative.nextmp.net/), gives the beneficiaries a place to display and showcase their products. The Hub opening was possible thanks to the support of @AICS and @EUDEL through the financing of a project implemented by @UNIDO, that gives special attention to Design and Leather sectors. This, of course, creates many synergies with the project AICS finances on the Rokkibi Leather City for a total amount of 6M euros.
