President Abdel Fattah El Sisi met on Sunday 3/3/2019 with chairman of the Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO) Liu Zhenya to discuss African efforts to obtain clean energy from renewable resources.
The meeting comes in light of Egypt's presidency of the African Union, said presidential spokesman Bassam Rady.
Rady stressed Egypt's full support for regional integration and efforts to upgrade the infrastructure in Africa through increased investment in cross-border projects.
The meeting also took up a possible role Egypt could play to implement an inter-African power connection, Rady said, adding that his country could very well serve as Africa's meeting point with Europe and Asia, given its distinguished geographic location.
