As the Egyptian economy recovers from challenges created by the January 25 Revolution and the global financial crisis, among the first sectors to pick up will be those served by PICO Engineering Group and its subsidiaries, which include the industrial, contracting and engineering sectors. Recent events have highlighted the need for renewed investment in Egypt’s infrastructure, underscoring both the importance and the growth potential of these key industries.
