Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi said that Egypt looks forward to promoting economic and commercial relations with Japan via promising investment opportunities in the Egyptian market in various sectors.

During a meeting with the chairman of the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) Hiroyuki Ishige, El-Sisi reiterated that Egypt is keen on direct interaction with Japanese businessmen to review Egypt's  capabilities, including trained labor and the free trade agreements inked with Arab, African and European countries.

He further highlighted the economic reform measures adopted by the government in order to encourage investments and remove obstacles facing the private sector, said presidential spokesman Bassam Rady.

The get-together, held between President El-Sisi and a high-level delegation of Japanese investors, took up the future prospects of Egypt's economy and the comprehensive economic reform programme being implemented by the cabinet.

The delegation, which comprises members of the Egypt-Japan Business Council, hailed the ambitious development plans adopted by the state and the political leadership, which are helping Egypt restore its pivotal regional status, the spokesman said.
