Egypt's Ministry of Environment organised Wednesday a roundtable meeting on cooperation between the Egyptian government and the World Bank (WB) in the sector of recycling solid waste.

The meeting was attended by Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad, Minister of Local Development Mahmoud Sharawy and Minister of Transport Hisham Arafat, along with a World Bank delegation.

The two sides discussed suitable measures to overcome the problem of solid waste in Egypt and to minimise air pollution, said Fouad in press statements.

She added that the issue is priority to the political leadership in Egypt.

Sharawy underlined the importance of benefiting from WB financing in improving the system of solid waste management in Egypt.

Arafat said there is a plan to minimise carbon emissions from transportation used in waste management.
