President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi spoke with IMF head Christine Lagarde on Friday to discuss ways to boost cooperation between Egypt and the international body, his spokesman said.

El-Sisi received a telephone from the managing director of the International Monetary Fund where they discussed the developments of the country’s economic reform programme.

During the call, the president asserted that the Egyptian people had the main role in making the efforts of the state in implementing the economic reforms succeed, which was confirmed by the positive indicators in the Egyptian economy and how the country’s credit rating had improved.

For her part, Lagarde praised the progress of the economic reforms the Egyptian government is adopting, according to the presidency.

She also asserted her keenness to continue the cooperation with Egypt on the economic reform programme.
