Egypt is keen on strengthening its strategic partnership with France as an important pillar for maintaining security and stability in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi has said.

Al-Sisi stressed the importance of economic and commercial cooperation between Egypt and France, and highlighted the priority of boosting French investments in the country.

Egypt represents a promising market and a doorway for French exports to different markets in the region, due to the former’s central geographical locales. It is also supported by the free trade agreements Cairo signed, as well as the incentives and advantages available for investing in the country.

In June, Al-Sisi met France’s Minister of Finance Bruno Le Maire for discussions on Egyptian-French economic and commercial cooperation, and ways to boost French investments in Egypt.
