Egypt, DR Congo discuss boosting bilateral cooperation during WYF
PM Madbouly says relevant authorities will study proposed areas of cooperation
Published in Daily News Egypt on 12 - 01 - 2022

Egypt's Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and Eve Bazaiba Masudi, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development of the DRC, discussed cooperation and matters of mutual concern on Wednesday on the sidelines of the World Youth Forum (WYF).
During the meeting, Madbouly praised the historical relations between Egypt and the DRC, expressing his aspiration to increase the volume of cooperation between the two countries in various fields.
Madbouly affirmed his full support for the brotherly DRC, its leadership, government, and people, expressing Egypt's readiness to provide various possible means of support to it, noting that work will be done with the relevant ministers to study the proposed areas of cooperation.
On her part, Masudi expressed her happiness to participate in the activities of the WYF, noting that meetings have been held with Egyptian officials to discuss ways to enhance cooperation in the fields of electricity, irrigation, and the environment.
The Congolese minister also held meetings with members of the Egyptian press in which she called on Egyptian investors to visit the DRC to explore the promising investment opportunities in the country.
In this context, the Congolese official reviewed a number of proposed files for cooperation, including a request for Egypt to support the DRC in the upcoming Conference of Parties to the United Nations' Convention on Climate Change (COP27) by introducing its capabilities and promising investment opportunities to serve environmental issues.
She also referred to the importance of the technical cooperation protocol that was signed between the two countries that will run from 2022 to 2027, under which the 'Integrated Water Resources Management' project is being implemented to maximise the utilisation of water resources and train technical cadres to manage them.
Furthermore, Masudi expressed her aspiration to push Egypt into more electricity and energy generation projects, especially since the DRC's rate of access to electricity does not exceed 14%, as well as supporting the stability of the situation in the eastern DRC and implementing development projects to alleviate the suffering of the poor.
