President El Sisi discusses economic cooperation with Argentinian Vice President

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi discussed economic cooperation with Argentina’s Vice President, Marta Gabriela Michetti, in Cairo, according to a statement from Ittihadiya. This comes after Argentina’s parliament approved the freetrade agreement between Egypt and the Mercosur in May. Argentina and Egypt can cooperate in agriculture, scientific research and technology, renewable energy, education, culture and sports, Michetti said. The two leaders also discussed cooperation on counter-terrorism and agreed to hold the joint economic and trade committee meetings soon. Michetti also met with Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry for talks on trade and economic cooperation between Egypt and Argentina, which will chair the G20 in 2018, according to a ministry statement.

Michetti is set to attend today the Egyptian-Argentinian Business Forum organized by the Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce, Al Masry Al Youm reports. Michetti’s visit comes ahead of a visit by the Argentinian President Mauricio Macri to Egypt in the coming period, according to the ministry spokesperson.
