The IsDB’s annual meeting is being held this year in Sharm El-Sheikh city for the first time under the patronage of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.
The PM hailed the attendance of a large number of senior representatives of governments, civil society and regional and international financial institutions as well as diplomatic envoys, saying that this reflects the importance of the IsDB meetings.
The meetings are being held under the theme ‘Beyond Recovery: Resilience and Sustainability.’
At the inaugural session of the meetings, a documentary film on the IsDB was screened to review the bank's objectives for development.
The film shed light on the bank's endeavors to enhance education for all and help displaced children enlist in schools and secure their future, in addition to other efforts to assist member states in standing against global challenges pertaining to food security, water, sanitation, health and renewable energy.
The film also highlighted the cooperation of the IsDB with international partners to achieve the global objectives of realising a better and sustainable future for all.
