So, I was having this conversation with a colleague almost a week ago. She asked: “why boycott when it’s Egyptians working in the factories of the foreign brands?” I replied: “it’s a matter of supply and demand. If the demand on the Egyptian brands got higher, then new factories and shops would have to open to sell Egyptian brands; i.e., none would go jobless.” The following day, I found Juka writing about it having a much better and more positive approach. Go local, buy Egypt. I know it is difficult to do it in every single product, specially that with some we don’t have Egyptian alternatives. But at least let’s try, people. So, I decided to go local in all the products I can afford doing so in. I know I might have to sacrifice on quality a bit, but it’s something I am willing to do hoping that when business flourishes, quality would go up.
Yalla, let’s all Go Local :)
