UK's Minister of State for the Middle East at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Andrew Murrison heaped praise on the notable progress achieved by Egypt's macroeconomic indicators throughout the past period.

Such an improvement is a good indicator of Egypt's promising future in the region, the newly-appointed minister said during his meeting with Egyptian Ambassador in London Tarek Adel on Monday.

The UK is keen on boosting cooperation with Egypt in all domains, Murrison said.

He also underscored his deep appreciation of the Egyptian history and culture, expressing hope to pay a visit to Cairo shortly.

Ambassador Adel, meanwhile, congratulated the minister on assuming his new post and expressed eagerness for stronger cooperation to further foster relations between the two countries in a way that meets mutual interests.
