Premier and Housing Minister Moustafa Madbouli stressed on Sunday 9/12/2018 that Egypt is an integral part of Africa and that the issue tops the cabinet's current priorities.
The government works on cooperating with all African states in implementing development projects, he noted.
During a seminar entitled "Egypt investment gate in Africa" held during Africa 2018 Forum taking place in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El Sheikh, Madboli said that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi has set this goal as a top priority since taking office.
The Premier further pointed out to the directives of President Sisi to the cabinet 6 months ago regarding achieving integration with Africa, referring to Egypt's presidency to the African Union next year.
He underscored that the African leaders stressed the importance of activating free trade and inter-trade agreements among the African countries during the activities of the forum.
It is time for the Africans to lead the development process in the continent, the prime minister reiterated.
