Within the framework of the objectives of the Arab Iron and Steel Union, to cooperate with scientific unions and societies, and similar Arab and foreign organizations, it was agreed between the AISU and the Association of Iron and Steel Technology AIST MENA on media participation between the two sides as a first step to expand the scope of cooperation between AISU and AIST.
In this matter, this was a special dialogue with the Director of Public Relations in the Middle East for the Association of Iron and Steel Technology AIST MENA, Eng. Adel Shawkat, about the importance of holding a conference on modern technology in the iron and steel industry in Cairo on the 6th and 7th of next June.
Engineer Adel Shawkat, Director of Public Relations in the Middle East of the Association, indicated that the participation of the Arab Iron and Steel Union through its news platform that covers all countries of the Arab world as a single Arab media partner, believing in its societal role to support industry in the Middle East region, is a first step to expand cooperation with AISU and AIST, which is a great addition to the conference and his keenness on the importance of this type of specialized conference.
