Argentina aims to promote economic ties with Egypt
Al-Sisi had rewarding dialogue with counterpart during G20 meetings, says Argentina's ambassador
Published in Daily News Egypt on 08 - 07 - 2019

Argentina aims to strengthen economic ties with Egypt in terms of pushing new investments, promoting trade exchange, and tourism figures, Eduardo Varela, the Argentinean ambassador to Egypt, told Daily News Egypt.
Both countries are working on advancing cooperation and pushing investments in the fields of livestock as Argentina has extensive experience in the livestock field, Varela noted. “There are some needs in Egypt in the livestock field and we are ready to cooperate with Egypt in this field.”
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi met with his Argentinian counterpart Mauricio Macri during the G20 summit held last week in Osaka, Japan, the ambassador added, asserting that both presidents had a very productive dialogue.
On 29 June, Egypt's presidential spokesperson Bassam Radi praised in a statement the strong historical bond between Egypt and Argentina and the ambitious Argentine economic reform programme, noting that Egypt can benefit from Argentina's success story.
He pointed out that both presidents see eye to eye the need to develop bilateral relations in all fields as well as reactivate the existing cooperation mechanisms, noting that Argentina is a member of the South American bloc, Mercosur, which is connected with Egypt by a free trade agreement.
The two presidents discussed during their talks possible ways to increase Egypt's trade exchange with Mercosur, which also groups Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay, Radi said.
The ambassador added that trade exchange between both countries is at $1.5bn per year, noting, “We aim at more balanced trade exchange with Egypt because we export a lot to Egypt, yet we are aware that in order to export more to Egypt, we have to buy more too.”
The ambassador stated that an Argentinean company is working on building energy facilities in Egypt through a commercial office not via a direct investment.
Egypt's Minister of Investment and International Cooperation, Sahar Nasr, visited Argentina in March, where she met with senior Argentinean officials for discussions to promote investments between both sides.
Additionally, Egyptian authorities are working on operating direct flights with Argentina, which will boost tourism figures between both countries, the ambassador noted.
