CAIRO: Prime Minister Sherif Ismail met Thursday with UAE delegation headed by Minister of State Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Youm7 reported.
They discussed ways to promote investment opportunities in Egypt through attracting foreign investment along with UAE’s development projects currently carried out in Egypt.
The projects include the construction of 100 new schools in 18 governorates, the development of a training program for Egyptian women as well as the construction of 78 health centers in 23 Egyptian governorates.
The two countries have been working as “close partners,” noting that a joint task force accomplished many projects which the government classifies as priority.” Youm7 quoted Al Jaber.
The UAE government has funded the construction of three bridges and has also delivered the Egyptian Public Transport Authority 600 buses in June.
Gulf States, namely the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait pledged $12 billion to Egypt in cash, deposits and petroleum shipments to support its economy after the military ousted President Mohamed Morsi following mass protests against his regime the same year.
