Dragasakis discusses possibilities of economic cooperation with Egypt’s Trade minister

The economic relations between Greece and Egypt were discussed in a meeting between Government Vice-president Yiannis Dragasakis and Egypt’s Trade and Industry Minister Tarek Kabil, in Athens on Wednesday.

According to the vice-presidency, Dragasakis said that Greece is on its way to complete its adjustment program and end its special supervision. He said economic recovery is not enough, as deep structural changes are needed to develop a new model of sustainable and equitable growth.

Dragasakis stressed Egypt’s role as a trade partner and a pillar of stability, noting that the two countries can cooperate in energy. He also mentioned Greek companies operating in the country which are interested in participating in infrastructure projects and other sectors.

He said Greece has important know-how which would allow it to contribute to projects such as the construction of the metro and other energy projects.

The minister was accompanied by Egyptian Ambassador to Greece, Farid Monib.
