Delegations of Arab member states and specialized organizations participated in the event.

“Egypt would spare no effort to help facilitate intra-Arab trade,” Gamea said, stressing its commitment to the ‘Agreement To Facilitate and Develop Trade Among Arab States’ and the ‘Greater Arab Free Trade Area’ (GAFTA).
