Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 185 / Friday, September 24, 2010 / Notices minimum mesh size for the Loligo fishery. This exemption was requested to allow completion of the project’s remaining four research trips using the previous minimum mesh size of 1 7/8 in. (48 mm). A change to the nets used to conduct field sampling at this stage of the project would undermine data analysis in support of the project’s objectives. Therefore, NMFS is reissuing the EFP in support of the drop chain study to facilitate the completion of the research project. The revised EFP includes an exemption from the Loligo Trimester III minimum mesh size of 2 1/8 in. (54 mm) at § 648.23(3). An exemption from the Loligo mesh size restriction will allow the completion of the project’s remaining research trips, using the previous minimum mesh size of 1 7/8 in. (48 mm). The exemption is within the scope and scale of the original approved EFP, and the overall impacts of research operations are unchanged from the initial review. The applicants may request minor modifications and extensions to the EFP throughout the course of research. EFP modifications and extensions may be granted without further public notice if they are deemed essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and result in only a minimal change in the scope or impacts of the initially approved EFP request.

This mission, led by a Senior Official of the Department of Commerce or other U.S. agency, will focus on the opportunities in port logistics, infrastructure projects, safety and security, and energy infrastructure. The mission will include one-on-one business appointments with prescreened potential buyers, agents, distributors and joint venture partners; site visits to ports and free trade zones, meetings with government officials, and networking receptions for companies interested in expansion into the North African, Middle Eastern and Southern European markets. Commercial Setting Egypt Egypt is strategically located at the gateway of trade and commerce for Southern Europe as well as North Africa and the Middle East. It is a prime location for the transit of goods, as well as a key destination for American companies seeking to do business in Egypt and the region. With a population of over 80 million Egypt is the largest Arab country, and the fourth largest export market for U.S. products and services in the Middle East. The U.S. is Egypt’s largest bilateral trading partner, and the second largest investor. In 2010, bilateral trade is expected to exceed $7 billion. The Egyptian gross domestic product (GDP) grew over five percent from 2009 to 2010. The financial sector escaped many negative impacts of the global financial crisis, due to Egypt’s improved banking supervision, conservative lending practices and central bank guarantee of all bank deposits. In 2010 the Egyptian Ministry of Investment announced major plans for infrastructure development with 46 different projects valued at over $16 billion. The majority of these projects are available to be awarded based on the Egyptian Government’s ‘‘Public Private Partnership’’ (PPP) measures. The PPP is a multi-faceted initiative to attract private sector investment for E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1
