Egyptian delegation visits DIN
On 7 September 2016, Mr Mohamed El-Sewedy, Chairman of the Federation of Egyptian Industries (FEI), visited DIN, leading a delegation of other Egyptian dignitaries, including Dr. Badr Abdelatty, Egyptian Ambassador to Germany. Discussions with DIN Executive Board members focussed on closer bilateral cooperation between the two countries in future standardization endeavours.
In 2004 DIN had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Egyptian Organization for Standardization and Quality Control (EOS), which was renewed in 2009 and which now has unlimited validity. The Egyptians also announced that the EOS is being restructured. A more intensive exchange of information with DIN was agreed upon, as was closer cooperation in general.
