The Egyptian Furniture Export Council (EFEC) is an independent entity established by a Ministerial decree as a support to the Furniture Sector that is considered one of the very fast developing industrial sectors in Egypt. It aims to enhance the competitiveness of the Egyptian furniture industry through various services and activities including - but not limited to - offering business strategy consultancy, export opportunities and matchmaking services, updates on export-related regulations and trade agreements, assistance locating and joining international exhibitions, and organizing conferences, training and workshops in collaboration with different local and international experts.
EFEC is also working on building the manufacturers' comprehension of the importance of design for the industry development and exports’ growth. The Egyptian Furniture industry embraces around 120,000 establishments and a highly productive over one million skilled labor force. Supported by EFEC and the Chamber of Woodworking and Furniture Industry (CWWFI), the sector is still undergoing an aggressive plan to penetrate new markets; while maintaining its current international market share without losing track of the vast growing local market at the moment. Currently, Egypt’s menu doesn’t serve only as a world class exquisite furniture source but also a supplier of global space solutions which includes interior and furniture design, as well as space management.
