Pirelli and the Egyptian government sign with the Social Fund for Development an agreement to build 35 tyre service centres.
On 13 July, Pirelli Egypt and the Social Fund for Development signed a two million euro agreement to open 35 tyre service centres for commercial and private vehicles in Egypt. With this agreement, we want to give young local entrepreneurs the opportunity to start their own business, supported by the professionalism and educational activities of a large international company such as Pirelli.
Younes Al-Alaoui – Managing Director of Pirelli Egypt – emphasized also the sustainable aspects resulting from this agreement: the cooperation between Pirelli and the Egyptian government to meet an important challenge such as the fight against unemployment by creating new jobs, developing qualified professionals, supporting the social and economic development of the local communities through certain key elements such as training and education is the proof that the operations between institutions and the private sector can yield effective results.
Soha Soliman – Secretary General of the Social Fund for Development – expressed all his appreciation for how Pirelli contributed to the efforts and the plans of the Egyptian government to create new job opportunities for the youngest individuals.
