Sat, Aug. 12, 2017
CAIRO – 12 August 2017: Egypt’s President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi will start a new African tour on Monday that will include Tanzania, Rwanda, Gabon and Chad, according to presidential spokesperson Alaa Youssef.

During this new trip, Sisi will meet the heads of state and top officials of these African countries. He will also preside over several bilateral meetings, showing the strong partnership ties that are gaining momentum between Egypt and other African countries.

Since President Sisi came to power in 2014, he has paid several visits to African
countries, a move which helped to spur Egyptian-African trade exchanges, investments, economic partnership and cooperation in various sectors such as agriculture, fisheries, vocational training, banking, mining and human development.

The new tour clearly shows Egypt’s determination to bolster ties with African countries facing major development challenges amid regional and international economic and political turmoil.
