CAIRO - 23 March 2020: Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli left for Amman, Jordan, Tuesday to attend the 29th session of the Egyptian-Jordanian higher committee.

Madbouli is leading an Egyptian delegation that includes the ministers of electricity, petroleum, supply, international cooperation, health, communications, housing, transport, civil aviation, agriculture and trade and industry.

A number of documents should be signed at the end of the talks with the aim to enhance cooperation between the two Arab countries.

Egyptian President Sisi and Jordanian King Abdullah II and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi held a tripartite summit in August 2020, during which they stressed the importance of strengthening cooperation and adopting the best ways and mechanisms to translate strategic relations on the ground.

The leaders highlighted areas of cooperation in economic, such as electrical connectivity, energy projects, and the common economic zone, especially in light of the global consequences of the emerging coronavirus pandemic on health, food, and economic security.
During August’s summit, the leaders directed the relevant ministers to focus on the health and medical sectors, education, energy, and intra-trade; encourage investment and economic cooperation, and benefit from the lessons of the emerging coronavirus pandemic, in order to deepen cooperation in the face of the impact of the pandemic.
The leaders instructed the foreign ministers to set tasks entrusted to the executive secretariat, including the tasks of preparing for tripartite and ministerial summits, following up on their outputs, and submitting the necessary reports for leaders' meetings.
