Egypt and Australia
Tuesday، 24 November 2015 - 12:00 AM
Egypt has friendly and positive relations with Australia, underpinned by strong people-to-people links. Trade, particularly in agriculture and resources, has long been an important aspect of the bilateral relationship. Both countries work constructively on international security issues including counter-terrorism, disarmament and the prevention of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
Our extensive people-to-people links provide a firm basis for the long-term development of the bilateral relationship. Today Australia is home to more than one hundred thousand citizens of Egyptian descent, with Egyptian migration to Australia extending back as far as the early 20th century.
