The event comes at a time when Cairo chairs the African Union for 2019, the statement read.
It also highlights the top priority given by Egypt to implement the Global Compact on Migration adopted by UN member states in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh, with a view to enhancing migration database and statistics at the national, regional and global levels, the statement added.
Over 40 African states will take part in the forum, in addition to a large number of African ministers concerned with the file of migration.
