The Egyptian Agency of Partnership for Development (EAPD) held discussions on Thursday with a Hungarian delegation about opportunities of tripartite cooperation in Africa.
Ambassador Mohamed Khalil, Secretary-General of EAPD received a delegation from the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, including the Director of the African Department and Deputy Director of the International Cooperation Department, as well as the Hungarian Ambassador in Cairo András Kovács and the Commercial Attaché.
The meeting dealt with opportunities for tripartite cooperation between the two countries in Africa within the framework of joint efforts to support the needs of a number of countries in the continent to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs) 2030 and the African Union Agenda 2063.
During the meeting, they reviewed the development activities of each party and exchanged views on proposals for joint programs and projects that can be implemented through capacity building, dispatching experts and providing assistance.
In this regard, the two parties agreed to attach special importance to joint cooperation in the field of health, and to study the preparation of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for tripartite cooperation in Africa.
The visit of the Hungarian delegation comes within the framework of the friendly relations between Egypt and Hungary, and in implementation of the results of the talks between Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto last February regarding boosting development cooperation between the two countries to support sub-Saharan Africa.
