UK trade envoy arrives in Cairo to talk healthcare with gov’t ministers

UK Trade Envoy Sir Jeffrey Donaldson has arrived in Cairo with representatives from two major British healthcare providers, Escalla and AT Medics, to explore ways to increase cooperation between the two countries in the health sector, the British Embassy in Cairo said. Donaldson is expected to meet with Finance Minister Mohamed Maait, Military Production Minister Mohamed Al Assar and Environment Minister Yasmin Fouad, as well as seven British companies working in Egypt’s healthcare sector, during his two-day visit to the Egyptian capital.

This follows the visit of a delegation of six British healthcare companies in April to meet with government officials on developing Egypt’s healthcare system. More than 30 Egyptian doctors have received training in the UK since Egypt and the UK signed an MoU in January to exchange expertise in the sector. The figure is expected to reach 100 before the end of the year, the embassy said.
