The COMESA Regional Investment Agency (RIA) has thanked Egypt's ministries of foreign affairs and investment and international cooperation for their great efforts in holding a successful edition of Africa Forum 2018 in Sharm el Sheikh under the patronage of President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
The forum was attended by more than 3,000 African and international figures, including African leaders and heads of the major international funding institutions.
In a statement to MENA, Heba Salama, director of RIA said that the Egyptian State attached special importance to this year's edition of the forum given the great efforts exerted by the Foreign Ministry to facilitate all procedures needed for the participation of international and African investors and media persons in the forum.
The RIA director added that the great efforts exerted by the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation under Sahar Nasr conveyed a civilized image of Egypt and reflected the great shift that Egypt has seen on both African and international arenas during Sisi's presidency.
Salama attributed the success of the three-day forum to the concerted efforts of all bodies concerned.
She affirmed that the great successes that were achieved by the three editions of the forum which were all held in Egypt made it one of the major economic African events.
