The Textile Export Council of Egypt; commonly known as TEC is a privately-managed organization created by the government to be responsible for the development and promotion of textile exports.
TEC is recognized for its commitment to provide services for the export community to drive the growth of Egypt’s exports in the textile sector.
TEC was established in 1997 by the Ministry of Trade by the decree No. 521. It is one of the think-tanks that help Egyptian policy-makers prepare strategies and take actions to increase both the quality and quantity of textile exports.
TEC functions as a framework gathering representatives of textile manufacturers and exporters (spinners, weavers, knitters, dyers& others). They all work on increasing the competitiveness of an industry that has an acknowledged heritage in Egypt.
