CAIRO: Trade and Industry Minister Tarek Qabil met with Portuguese Ambassador to Cairo Magdalena Fischer on Friday to discuss ways to enhance bilateral trade ties and joint investment projects between the two countries, Youm7 reported.

Both sides also discussed preparations for the Egyptian-Portuguese trade committee meetings, scheduled to be held in Cairo later this year.

The meeting precedes Portuguese foreign minister’s anticipated visit to Cairo next week where he is scheduled to meet with Egyptian top officials and businessmen and discuss ways to boost economic and political ties.

The two sides also tackled ways to “increase rates of commercial exchange to reflect the distinguished political ties binding both countries,” according to a statement from the Trade Ministry on Saturday.
