Saeed Abdullah, Head of Trade Agreements and Foreign Trade at Egypt’s Ministry of Trade and Industry, has refuted local media reports about plans to cancel the navigation convention with the Turkish side. Ro-Ro is a navigational line for exporting products from one country to another, he noted. There were circulating local media reports about plans to cancel the Egyptian-Turkish convention stating that Egypt had not achieved financial required revenues. The Egyptian government has made an agreement with the Turkish side on March 2012 to exploit Egyptian ports for the transport of Turkish exports whether food stuff, electric devices or textiles to Arab gulf countries after Syrian authorities’ closure of passageways outlets in front of Turkish trade directed to the Arab gulf. And on the 10th of November 2012 the Egyptian government has announced commence of work of the navigational line between Turkish “Eskendrona” port and Egyptian “Damietta” port on the Mediterranean north Egypt. The Ro- Ro line is a navigational line for exporting products from one country to another on trucks transported by ferries between nearest ports to the Mediterranean then completing its way to another land port on the Red Sea, trucks are then transported again by ferries to Saudi ports and from which by land to rest of gulf countries and vice versa.

Microsoft took on Atlas with its $6.3 billion acquisition of digital ad agency aQuantive in 2007. Unable to make it work for its own purposes, Microsoft wrote off $6.2 billion of the aQuantive deal's value in 2012. The world's No.1 Internet social network, which lags behind market leader Google Inc in U.S. market for online display ads, did not reveal how much it paid for the technology.
