Egypt will take part for the first time in the G20 meeting for finance ministers and central bank governors in Shanghai that is scheduled to take place on 26 and 27 February, a statement by the finance ministry said on Thursday.  

Egypt was invited to participate in the economic forum by this year's host country China, the statement said.

Since its launch in 1999, finance ministers and central bank governors from the world's top 20 economies have been meeting annually to discuss economic cooperation.

The first G20 leaders' summit was first held in 2008 following the world financial crisis.
