Geneva- June 11, 2022

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has taken part in the African ministerial Meeting, held on the sidelines of the WTO 12th Ministerial Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 12-15.

“African countries need to join efforts in face of the economic and sanitary challenges the world is currently facing, and to have a unified vision that reflects their common interests within the WTO,” Gamea highlighted in her speech.

The meeting was attended by WTO Director General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, African Union Commissioner for Trade and Industry Albert Muchanga and Executive Director of the International Trade Centre Pamela Coke-Hamilton, while President of the African Import-Export Bank Benedict Oramah participated via video conference.

It concluded by adopting the Ministerial Declaration by the WTO African group, which supports Egypt’s proposal about helping Net-Food Importing Developing Countries (NFIDCs) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to address food security challenges.
