The initiative depends on the partnership between the state and the private sector in the micro and small enterprises, Shaarawy said.
The initiative aims at establishing industrial and productive complexes in the villages, he said.
The ministry conducted an analytic study on the similar projects and successful experiments implemented in some governorates topped by Qalubiya, he added.
