Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly’s visit to Tunisia received extensive media coverage in both countries due to the expected economic results it is expected to produce and the coordination of political positions on several regional issues, particularly stability in neighboring Libya. .
Upon his arrival, Madbouly was greeted at the airport by his Tunisian counterpart Najla Bouden Romdhane, who stressed his country’s desire to strengthen its ties with Egypt.
The prime minister is leading the Egyptian delegation to the 17th session of the Egyptian-Tunisian High Committee meetings, which started on Thursday and will last for two days.
The meetings are expected to include the signing of 11 agreements aimed at strengthening bilateral cooperation between Cairo and Tunis.
Madbouly’s visit will also cover political affairs, noted observers, who pointed to the rapprochement between Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sissi and his Tunisian counterpart Kais Saied.
Bouden’s office said that the meetings of the Higher Committee will be an opportunity to strengthen the ties of brotherhood and cooperation that unite Egypt and Tunisia, hoping that they will be elevated to even higher levels.
Madbouly’s office said the Egyptian-Tunisian economic forum will be held on the sidelines of the Higher Committee meetings and will focus on exploring investment prospects between Cairo and Tunis.
