El Sisi talks cooperation in Vietnam, kicks off Egypt-Vietnam business forum

Vietnamese investors coming, too? Over in Hanoi, President Abdel Fattah El Sisi discussed cooperation with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc (pdf), who noted that Vietnam is interested in importing chemicals, meds, and cotton from Egypt and is looking to cooperate on agriculture, transport, education, and tourism. Vietnam’s foreign minister told a business forum attended by El Sisi that investors from his country are primarily interested in the petroleum, agriculture, and textile industries, according to a statement from Ittihadiya (pdf). Investment Minister Sahar Nasr also spoke at the forum. El Sisi also sat down for a talk with his Vietnamese counterpart Tran Dai Quang and signed six MoUs (pdf) that covered cooperation in trade, fishing and fish farming, media, tourism, culture and sports.
