Boost for co-op­er­a­tion

The Star Early Edition - - INTERNATIONAL -

EGYPT and Ar­gentina yes­ter­day dis­cussed ways to boost bi­lat­eral eco­nomic and trade co-op­er­a­tion, as they cel­e­brated the 70th an­niver­sary of their diplo­matic ties. Meet­ing with vis­it­ing Ar­gen­tine vice pres­i­dent Gabriela Michetti, Egyp­tian Pres­i­dent Ab­del-Fat­tah al-Sisi high­lighted the pos­i­tive out­come of his meet­ing with his Ar­gen­tine coun­ter­part Mauri­cio Macri last year. Michetti’s visit to Cairo co­in­cides with the 70th an­niver­sary of es­tab­lish­ing diplo­matic re­la­tions between Egypt and Ar­gentina. Sisi also em­pha­sised the im­por­tance of ac­ti­vat­ing the eco­nomic and com­mer­cial com­mit­tee between the two coun­tries. Egypt seeks to open new ex­port mar­kets to limit grow­ing bud­get deficit, in­fla­tion, and for­eign and do­mes­tic debts, as it is im­ple­ment­ing painful eco­nomic re­forms.
