Noteworthy، the Egyptian market for water and wastewater equipment and services is growing and becoming more competitive due to renewed government focus on the sector and recently secured investments creating opportunities for foreign and domestic operators and investors، according to export.gov website.
The Egyptian government is also working to create a favorable، competitive landscape and may be ready to provide guarantees on payments for public-private partnership water projects to help mitigate the currency risk.
The Holding Company for Water and Wastewater (HCWW) has finalized the country's master plan for water and sanitation up to 2037، which prioritizes a number of potential water projects according to socio-economic need.

Despite the presence of the Nile River، which spans the entire length of Egypt from South to North، Egypt has suffered from water scarcity problems in recent years.
The Government of Egypt has launched a number of awareness campaigns to educate Egyptians concerning best practices for developing networks to ensure effective and responsible water distribution and usage.
The governments of Egypt، Ethiopia and Sudan signed a declaration of principles on March 23، 2015 on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam to end the Nile water crisis which is a positive step after a period of concern from Egypt on the effect the Dam will have on its water resources.
There is also a strong need to expand networks of wastewater management to a large number of rural areas throughout Egypt.
