Egypt + Denmark extend energy cooperation

Egypt and Denmark have extended a bilateral energy cooperation agreement through to 2025, cabinet said in a statement yesterday. Under the agreement, Denmark will help Egypt transition towards cleaner energy. This came during Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s visit to Cairo yesterday, where she held talks with President El Sisi and Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly.

Could Denmark help with our green hydrogen ambitions? During his meeting with Frederiksen, Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly talked about expanding relations to include green hydrogen projects and pharma, according to a statement. Frederiksen also highlighted her country’s desire to boost cooperation with Egypt across the board, in energy, maritime transport and logistics, among other fields.

Frederiksen + Sisi talk energy and immigration: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi wrapped up his meeting with the Danish PM with a 15-minute presser (watch, runtime: 14:23), highlighting the most important topics of discussion — new and renewable energy, illegal immigration, and water security. “Egypt is ready to provide any facilities needed to attract Danish companies to Egypt,” El Sisi said. The president also reiterated the need for Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia to reach a binding agreement on the filling and operation of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.
