Minister of Industry and Trade Mounir Fakhry Abdel Nour discussed on Sunday 15/3/2015 with Portugal's Deputy Prime Minister Paulo de Sacadura Portas means of boosting bilateral trade cooperation.
They agreed that bilateral trade between Egypt and Portugal was far less than the level of political relations binding the two countries.
Businessmen from the two sides need to maintain contacts to discuss investment opportunities in the two countries.
For his part, Portas said that his government was keen on fostering cooperation with Egypt as one of the major countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
