President Sisi made these remarks during meeting with representatives of major British companies, led by British Secretary of State for Middle East Affairs Tobias Ellwood, as well as members of the Egyptian-British Business Council.
President Sisi stressed the rejection of the Egyptian people to the extremist ideas. He reviewed the efforts exerted by Egypt to combat terrorism, stressing the importance of boosting international efforts to uproot terrorism.
He added that Egypt’s stability will largely contribute to the stability of the entire region.
During the meeting, President Sisi has urged British businessmen to increase their investments in Egypt to give a push to the economic development process, said Presidential Spokesman Alaa Youssef.
“The Egyptian government is studying a number of procedures including “single window” system to counter corruption and red-tape and facilitate investment ahead of the conference due in Sharm el Sheikh in March, said President Sisi.
Egypt is committed to its pledges and settling problems of foreign direct investors, he said, adding that Egypt has paid 4bn dollars of arrears for the petroleum companies operating in Egypt.
