Minister of State for Military Production Mohamed El-Assar met with Estonia’s Ambassador in Cairo Sander Soone on Friday to discuss means of bolstering bilateral cooperation in the military and civil industries.

During the meeting, held at the ministry’s headquarters in Cairo, the two sides discussed the latest developments with regard to the e-ticketing system that aims to secure the return of football fans to stadiums via a partnership between the National Organization for Military Production, Falcon Security Company and an Estonian security company.

The partnership was established in cooperation with the Egyptian Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Ministry of Interior and the Egyptian Football Association. 

The ambassador said that the Estonian government was keen to assist Egypt in the e-ticketing system should it be chosen to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, to be held in June and July. 

Soone also lauded the success achieved by Egypt’s EDEX 2018 defence expo, which was held earlier this month.
