Egypt’s Ambassador to Brussels addresses climate change, development issues in Africa with EU officials

The meetings dealt with ways to enhance cooperation and coordination with Egypt, both at the level of officials of the European Commission and the European Parliament.

Egypt’s Ambassador to Brussels Badr Abdel Aty met with a group of European Commission officials and members of the European Parliament on Sunday.

The meetings dealt with ways to enhance cooperation and coordination with Egypt, both at the level of officials of the European Commission and the European Parliament.

They also discussed major energy projects in Egypt, particularly clean and green energy and their contribution to Egypt’s self-sufficiency and exports to Europe and other countries of the world in the future.

Preparations for the 27th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change (COP 27) — which will be held in Egypt’s Sharm El-Sheikh this November — were discussed as well.

Furthermore, the two sides discussed arrangements for the upcoming visit of the first Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans, who will be responsible for the Green Deal, to Cairo in April.

Additionally, the meeting tackled Egypt’s interest in developing the transportation sector, modernising infrastructure, expanding roads, developing the railway system, and maritime and river transportation.

For their part, the European side expressed its keenness to further cooperate with Egypt in the field of transportation, especially as it is a leading country in this field in the Middle East and Africa.

They also stressed the importance of linking Africa and Europe to contribute to further cooperation, including the Lake Victoria-Mediterranean link project and the Cairo-Khartoum-Juba-Kampala road project, emphasising the importance of implementing the positive results of the EU-AU summit that was held in Brussels on 17 and 18 February 2022.
