The two sides also discussed the activities associated with the joint steering committee and technical groups.
Mashat, meanwhile, hailed the close relations binding Egypt and the UN, terming their partnership as “long-established”.
The launch of the new strategic partnership framework for Egypt constitutes a new chapter of joint cooperation and represents a perfect opportunity to review the cooperation between the agencies and the programs of the UN and the national bodies, added the minister.
In a related context, Mashat discussed with Panova bilateral cooperation in the various development spheres, including the National Green Projects Platform “NWFE”, to drive Egypt’s green transition and switch toward using renewable energy sources.
Panova, meanwhile, said that the UN is keen on holding cooperation with the government, especially at the level of technical support, to contribute to efforts aiming to attain fair transition to sustainable economy and advancing climate action through “NWFE” platform. MENA
