CAIRO - 24 February 2019: Minister of Investment and International Cooperation Sahar Nasr, Finance Minister Mohamed Maait and Head of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) Mohamed Mamish will embark on a promotion visit to the Korean capital Seoul on Monday.
During the visit, the Egyptian-Korean Business Forum will convene in the presence of a galaxy of Egyptian and Korean businessmen.
The Egyptian officials are expected to meet with a number of Korean financial foundations and hold talks with the Korean premier and his deputy.
