Minister of State for Military Production Mohamed El Assar discussed on Friday with German Parliamentary State Secretary Thomas Silberhorn and the delegation accompanying him means of bolstering bilateral cooperation.

The delegation consisted of members of the German Bundestag and members of the German defence ministry.

The two sides discussed future cooperation with Bombardier Inc. in railway manufacturing.

They also discussed possible cooperation with KSB, one of the world's leading manufacturers of pumps and valves, for the operation of solar water wells.

During their meeting, the officials lauded El Assar's meeting with a number of German companies in Munich in July 2018, during which he inspected the production lines of these companies to learn about the latest technologies used in manufacturing.

They also lauded his last visit to Germany in January as part of the ministerial delegation to meet officials and companies in the field of waste management in order to benefit from the German experience in the development of waste management systems and transfer them to Egypt.

The two sides also reviewed the key national projects the ministry contributes to implementing in the country, in addition to the current fields of cooperation between Egypt’s military production firms and their German peers.

Silberhorn lauded the technological, technical, training and human capabilities available at the military production companies within Egypt's framework for sustainable development plan 2030.

He also hailed as “close” Egypt-Germany cooperation in several fields, noting that his current visit to Cairo aims to bolster cooperation with Egyptian military firms.
