CAIRO – 13 December 2018: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi received an invitation on Wednesday from President of Cote d'Ivoire Alassane Ouattara to visit Yamoussoukro.

During a meeting with Vice President of Cote d'Ivoire, Daniel Kablan Duncan, Sisi received a hand-written letter, in which Ouattara invited Sisi to visit his country, according to presidential spokesperson Bassam Rady.

Duncan praised the bilateral relations between Egypt and Cote d'Ivoire, especially on the economic and trade levels.

Sisi welcomed Duncan and the accompanying delegation which arrived in Cairo on December 11. He accepted Ouattara's invitation, affirming that he is willing to pay Cote d'Ivoire a visit soon.

Sisi also lauded the mutual cooperation between the two countries, asserting Egypt’s keenness to develop it on all levels.

In July 2018, an Egyptian trade mission headed to Ivory Coast, as part of the Trade Ministry's strategy to expand trade exchange in the African market.

Executive Chairwoman of the Engineering Export Council of Egypt (EEC) Maha Saleh said in a statement that the mission included representatives of 18 companies of electric industries, car components and metalwork.

Saleh pointed out that the EEC aims to increase exports to $3 billion by the end of 2018, noting that the trade sector’s exports have grown since the end of 2017.
