Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly and his Jordanian counterpart Omar Razzaz have stressed the importance of continuing cooperation between the two countries in light of current regional challenges.
Speaking at a press conference following the end of the Egyptian-Jordanian higher committee meetings, Madbouly said the political leaderships of the two countries are keen on boosting bilateral relations at the political, economic and social levels.
The higher committee meetings reflect strong and historic relations between the two countries, he said, adding that Cairo and Amman signed several cooperation protocols in different fields during the committee meetings.
Madbouly noted that today's meeting tackled a number of political issues, as well as the latest developments in the Mideast region.
He also stressed the importance of solving problems facing Egyptian and Jordanian businessmen, adding that the volume of trade exchange is expected to surge in the coming period.
Madbouly noted that the registration of Jordanian companies in Egypt will take two weeks maximum, a move which he said will help open new aspects of cooperation between the two countries.
The prime minister also stressed the need for continuing mutual coordination to open new markets in Arab and African countries and to take part in the reconstruction processes in a number of brotherly countries.
He further reiterated Egypt's keenness on boosting cooperation with Jordan in the fields of electricity and oil.
