What are the procedures for registering a trademark in Egypt?

What is the trademark according to the Egyptian law
The origin of a trademark goes back a long time when craftsmen signed or marked their artistic or utilitarian products. Over the years, these marks have evolved into a trademark registration and protection system as we know it today. This system helps consumers identify and buy products or services because nature and quality reflected by the trademark satisfy the consumer’s needs.
Q: To whom the Egyptian law gives the right to apply for trademark registration?
A: The registration of a trademark guarantees protection to the owner of the trademark, and also guarantees an exclusive right to use the trademark or authorize the use thereof by the third party in return for a given amount of money. More broadly, the trademark helps promote global entrepreneurship by means of a reward offered to the owners, exemplified by recognition and other benefits.
