Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed e-governance and IT sector projects with Estonia's President Kersti Kaljulaid on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, according to a statement from El-Sisi’s spokesman.

El-Sisi welcomed the activities of a number of Estonian companies in Egypt, which are working in the field of e-governance, IT, transport technology, shipping and logistics, pointing to the promising investment opportunities offered by the Suez Canal Economic Zone, according to a statement by Bassam Rady.

The Egyptian president stressed his keenness on promoting cooperation and relations with Estonia at all levels.

The pair also discussed cooperation in the fields of energy production from waste and extraction of shale oil.

They also discussed a number of regional and international issues of common concern and the challenges faced by African and European countries, especially the phenomenon of illegal immigration and terrorism, which require coordination and work between the two sides to reach effective solutions to these challenges through a common vision.

Kaljulaid, for her part, said her country seeks to boost cooperation with Egypt, in light of Cairo's great regional and African status, said Radi.

The meeting was held on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference in Germany.
