IMI - Defense Trade Opportunities in Egypt


The Egyptian armed forces are currently trying to complete their
replacement of East European and former Soviet equipment with
modern Western systems.

Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent every year on the
purchase of sophisticated electronic and other equipment to
modernize the Egyptian army.  Although the annual budget of the
Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Military Production is
not known, it is estimated to be around $3 billion.  Egypt
receives about $1.3 billion every year as military assistance
from the U.S.

Egypt has 32 defense production plants which are supervised by
three government entities.  Several of these plants produce
civilian products, in addition to defense equipment or defense-related 
products, and are looking for additional opportunities to
produce under license.

The Egyptian armed forces are continuing the task of replacing
their East European and ex-Soviet Union equipment with modern
U.S. / western systems.

Military and defense related equipment are financed by the
Egyptian government with both donor funds and Egypt's national
defense budget.  U.S. foreign military financing provides about
$1.2 billion annually.

The Egyptian budgeted funds which come from the national fund of
Egypt, finance other police  purchases such as security products
from international manufacturers from all-over the world.

According to Egyptian Law No. 9 of 1983, foreign companies
interested in participating in civilian government tenders can
quote through their registered Egyptian commercial agents.
However, agents cannot participate and cannot be used by foreign
firms to bid on military tenders.  This is because commercial
commissions are totally prohibited on military sales.
However, consultants or service companies are permitted to
follow-up on sales to the military and provide services.  Many
retired military officers operate such legal businesses as
consultants and servicing companies to foreign suppliers of
defense equipment to the Ministry of Defense.

Sales to the Ministry of Interior and the Police Forces can be
made through agents.  Following is the address of the Central
Purchasing Office for the Police Forces:

Ministry of Interior

Financial Affairs
Tel: 20-2-354-7001/355-7700 & Fax: 20-2-355-1975

Bidders should bear in mind that there is no time limit for the
decision-making committees to meet, make, or announce their
decision.  This means that bidders would have to pay for any
renewals of their bid bonds until the tender is awarded.
Withdrawal from a competition involves losing the bid bond.

Information on the requirements by the Ministry of Defense can be
obtained from the Office of the Military Attache at the Egyptian
Embassy in Washington, or from the Egyptian Procurement Office
