DHL Global Forwarding shared the tradelane data at its annual trade lane meeting in Cairo, Egypt where senior business representatives met to discuss emerging bilateral trade trends and opportunities, in particular focusing on trade between Egypt and North Asia Pacific.

“China is Egypt's top trading partner in North Asia Pacific. Together, South Korea, Japan and China accounted for some 75-85% of all air and ocean freight volumes from North Asia Pacific to Egypt in 2009,” said Kelvin Leung, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding North Asia Pacific.

These sectors account for over 60% of ocean freight exports from Egypt into NAP, and 20% of exports from NAP into Egypt with an industry projected growth of 8.7% per annum till 2015,” said Enver Moretti, CEO DHL Global Forwarding Emerging Markets Region. “Similarly, the Fashion and apparel sector continues to be China's largest export into Egypt, while the electronics goods sector is projected to grow by more than 12% per annum till 2015.”

Apparel & Footwear account for the largest share of Airfreight exports between NAP and EMA; followed by Engineering & Manufacturing. By 2015, Apparel & Footwear is expected to grow by 6% , Engineering and Manufacturing 7% and consumer goods by 11%.

Similarly, in Ocean Freight, exports are expected to grow driven by Manufactured Goods, Chemicals & Life Sciences, and by Engineering and Manufacturing commodities. Each sector is expected to grow by 7-8% by 2015.
