Egypt hopes the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) would increase its support for more developmental projects in the North African country in the coming period.
Egyptian Minister of International Cooperation Sahar Nasr has received Sunday Sherry Carlin, USAID Mission Director, and some officials in the U.S. embassy in Cairo; they discussed the ongoing joint developmental projects between Egypt and United States.
Minister Nasr has expressed willingness to witness more cooperation ties with the USAID in sectors of common interest in the coming period.
The Egyptian minister referred to the importance of USAID’s support for prevention and control of Hepatitis C virus infection, water treatment, and desalination projects, which considered a top priority for both people and the Egyptian government’s economic reform programme.
From her part, Carlin empashised the United States’ interest to support sectors of top priority for the Egyptian government.
