The EBRD’s Vice President for Policy and Partnerships, Mark Bowman, will be visiting Egypt from 1 to 7 March for high-level meetings with government officials and the business community to discuss COP27, the Bank’s new country strategy and the recovery from the pandemic.
Ahead of the visit, Mr Bowman said: “The EBRD is committed to helping Egypt overcome the economic impact of the pandemic and to continuing to deliver reforms that secure a sound, sustainable and inclusive recovery. We are also working with the Egyptian authorities and the private sector to meet their green goals in the run-up to COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh.”
Egypt is a founding member of the EBRD. Since the start of its operations there in 2012, the Bank has invested more than €8.6 billion in 144 projects in the country.
