The President of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Mr Abdel Fattah El Sisi, and the President of the European Commission, Ms Ursula von der Leyen, met in Cairo to review and discuss enhanced cooperation on climate, energy and industrial transformation challenges ahead of COP27 in Egypt later this year.

Fostering sustainable development, combatting climate change and environmental degradation, ensuring energy security and a balanced and just green transition are shared priorities for Egypt and the EU.

Acknowledging the urgency to take ambitious measures and inspire global action, we reaffirm our joint commitment and determination to accelerate the just energy transition and develop a resource-efficient, socially just and low emissions and climate neutral economy to enhance shared prosperity through resilient and sustainable growth.

Egypt and the EU recognise the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement as fundamental pillars to prepare the world for future systemic shocks. Trade, investments and policy reform in support of these agendas and based on their agreed principles are the drivers and preconditions of sustainable recovery and development.
