Strategic partnership

The conference, organized in partnership between Egypt and the European Commission, comes shortly after the signing of the Joint Declaration on The Strategic Comprehensive Partnership between Egypt and the EU in March.

During the signing ceremony, the EU pledged an aid and investment package worth €7.4 billion ($8.1 billion) for Egypt. The package includes €600 million in grants, with €200 million allocated to migration management, in addition to €5 billion in soft loans and €1.8 billion in investments.

This economic and investment plan focuses on key projects, such as energy transformation and support for Egypt’s Water-Food-Energy Nexus initiative, which forms part of the nation’s climate strategy.
