he Ambassadors of Singapore, Serbia, Norway, and a representative from the Swiss Embassy in Cairo participated on Tuesday in a session held by the Egyptian-European Business Council (EEBC) to discuss Egypt’s latest steps in economic reform in light of its 2030 development strategy.
The session was headed by Egyptian Ambassador Ehab Srour, and administered by Mona Zaki with the attendance of several members of the EEBC’s board of directors and other public figures.
During the meeting, the attendees stressed the importance of cooperating with foreign partners and drawing upon their experience to help Egypt’s reforms suceed.
Egypt began an economic reform plan in 2014 in hopes of boosting an economy battered by years of political upheaval.
The foreign ambassadors highlighted their countries’ economic cooperation with the Egyptian government in several fields, foremost among them being education reform, vocational training, and sporting exchange.
The EEBC, which is chaired by prominent businessman Mohamed Abou El-Enein, often meets European business partners to discuss attracting foreign investment to Egypt.
Egypt Vision 2030, launched in 2016, aims to implement a programme of sustainable development policies involving the country’s youth, to be implemented regardless of any changes in government or leadership.
