Cairo- July 3, 2021

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has flown to the Iraqi capital Baghdad, heading a delegation of government officials and businessmen, to hold economic cooperation talks with counterparts in Iraq.

The visit, the first by a senior public servant following the historic visit of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to Iraq last week, aims to build on what was agreed upon during the Iraq-Jordan-Egypt summit in Baghdad.

“It will explore all economic issues at the bilateral and regional levels, as well as review opportunities for joint cooperation in the fields of trade, industry, investment, agriculture, logistical transport and mining,” Gamea said.

Egypt, she added, seeks to transfer its know-how in establishing specialized industrial complexes and cities to Iraq, and accelerate the implementation of development projects discussed at the tripartite summit.

Gamea is scheduled to hold a series of meetings with senior officials in the Iraqi government, including: Minister of Industry and Minerals Manhal Aziz Al-Khabbaz, Minister of Trade Alaa Al-Jubouri and Minister of Planning Khaled Battal Al-Najm, in addition to a meeting with the private sector representatives at the headquarters of the Iraqi Federation of Industries to explore the investment opportunities available in the two countries.
