The meeting aimed to explore ways to enhance trade and investment cooperation between Egypt and Malaysia.
 
Minister Samir noted that over 26 Malaysian companies currently operate in Egypt, with major investments from the Malaysian National Petroleum and Energy Company Petronas and the energy company Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA).
 
Additionally, the Malaysian delegation is scheduled to visit the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone) tomorrow to explore opportunities for establishing a Malaysian palm oil storage project for re-export to markets in the Middle East and Africa.
 
Samir emphasized Egypt's commitment to strengthening joint industrial and investment cooperation with Malaysia across various sectors. 
 
He also highlighted the importance of establishing direct air routes between Egypt and Malaysia, which would boost Malaysian tourism to Egypt and facilitate the air transport of Egyptian fresh produce to the Malaysian market.
