Egypt-Rwanda Business Council urges the necessity of establishing a navigational line linking between Egypt and East Africa countries. One of the most challenging obstacles in the Egyptian-African relations is the high cost of transportation, said the Egypt-Rwanda Business Council’s chairman Emad El Prince. This in return requires reaching a strategy to unify the transportation process in African markets, he added. The Egyptian official further elaborated that the intra-African transportation process is highly expensive and complicated, which arouses the need of making the best usage of the existing transportation network in the continent. There are 4 routes to Nepad states that needed to be connected to Egypt to guarantee the trade flow between it and the majority of the African countries, El Prince noted. The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) is an economic development program of the African Union. NEPAD was adopted at the 37th session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government in July 2001 in Lusaka, Zambia. NEPAD aims to provide an overarching vision and policy framework for accelerating economic co-operation and integration among African countries. Hence, El Prince stressed the necessity of reconsidering the navigation line- that connects Egypt to East Africa states - as the best solution for the difficulties African markets face such as; imposing higher freight rates by foreign countries.

The two men headed a meeting of delegations from the two countries in the context of Dahy's visit in Nicosia and discussed ways of cooperation, including the possibility of a ferry connection, cooperation on cruises, the employment of Egyptian personnel in ships under Cypriot management and the use of Cyprus as a link between Egypt and the EU. Dahy said there were a number of ongoing projects in Egypt that Cypriot businesses had been invited to bid for. "We have discussed the current transportation projects and presented them to our friends in Cyprus," he said. The two men discussed ways of cooperating by making use of Cyprus' and Egypt's geographic locations especially with regard to ports, and the current expansion of the Suez Canal. They also spoke of the possibility for the employment of Egyptian maritime graduates and of establishing a branch of the Arab Academy of Science Technology and Maritime Education in Cyprus. Another item on the agenda according to Demetriades was "the possibility of doing together some EU projects and getting funding from the EU".

Boeing Co (BA.N) reported a 23 percent increase in core fourth-quarter profit on Wednesday, topping analysts' estimates and sending its shares up 4.3 percent. Boeing forecast a rise in cash flow to $6.2 billion in 2015, at the top end of expectations, from $4.3 billion at the end of the year. Boeing's results showed strong year-end performances across its businesses. But analysts saw more strength in defense, where profit margins widened. In contrast, commercial airplane margins narrowed as Boeing delivered more 787 Dreamliners, which remain costly to produce. Despite the concerns, Boeing's "solid 2015 cash flow guidance suggests confidence on lower 787 unit costs," JPMorgan analyst Joseph Nadol said in a note to clients. The cash forecast for 2015 was "a very robust number," and gives Boeing flexibility to return money to shareholders, said Peter Arment, an analyst at Sterne Agee. For 2015, the world's biggest plane maker forecast core earnings, excluding pension and other costs, of between $8.20 and $8.40 a share, below the average analyst estimate of $8.64. Analysts expected a weaker profit outlook because of tax items that boosted 2014 results. Net profit rose to $1.47 billion, or $2.02 per share, in the quarter from $1.23 billion, or $1.61 per share, a year earlier. Core earnings increased to $2.31 per share from $1.88. The latest result beat the $2.11 average that analysts expected, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Boeing's deferred production cost balance for the Dreamliner program rose to $26.1 billion at year end from $25.2 billion in the third quarter. The figure represents the costs of making 787s, averaged over the first 1,300 aircraft that are deferred from its income statement. The rise was greater than some analysts expected, but in line with past increases. However, it suggested Boeing may struggle to cap the total balance at $27 billion as it had targeted, Nadol said. The company added $12 billion worth of orders to its total production backlog in the quarter, pushing the backlog to $502 billion from $490 billion at the end of the third quarter. As announced earlier, jetliner deliveries rose to 723 in 2014 from 648 in the previous year, topping those by rival Airbus Group (AIR.PA). For 2015, Boeing said it will deliver 750 to 755 jetliners. Boeing shares jumped $5.75 to $138.25. More»

Egyptian business tycoon Naguib Sawiris’ contribution to Cypriot Ayia Napa development is expected to help bring the project to fruition, Cyprus’s tourism minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis said. The Government of Cyprus has revealed on Monday that a new strategic shareholder, represented in the Egyptian business tycoon, has joined the ambitious marina project located in Ayia Napa, along the southeastern coast of the island. Lakkotrypis further told local media sources following a formal meeting with President Nicos Anastasiades, that M.M. Makronisos Marina Ltd., the consortium responsible for the development of the marina, has concluded an agreement with Sawiris, providing for construction to begin during 2015. The marina is preliminarily projected to be completed by 2018. The Ayia Napa marina is currently one of the largest investment projects in Cyprus. Expected to require an overall investment of some €220 million, the marina is estimated to create a total of 800 jobs during construction, and an additional 200 when the project becomes operational, Cyprus-based Gold News reported. “We are looking at the development that happened in Mykonos,” Sawiris said of the inspiration behind the luxury marina project. “Even Mykonos does not have marina facilities of the high quality we are seeking to create here.” “The faster it kicks into the economy, the more success it will have,” he added. Sawiris cited both the island’s tourist potential and Cyprus’ proximity to Cairo as reasons for investing in the marina.  “The people are nice, the weather is nice and the country is beautiful, so it has all the ingredients for a successful tourist project,” he said. “Our intention with this project is to bring Ayia Napa back onto the tourist map, as the marina will provide a place for yachts to dock,” he concluded.According to Sawiris, the marina project will include a variety of residential and hospitality facilities, including apartments, villas as well as a luxury hotel.
