YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 28, ARMENPRESS. Egyptian Ambassador to Armenia Bahaa El Din Bahgat Dessouki says his country will try to present Armenian goods to African countries during its tenure as President at the African Union.
“This year, in 2019 Egypt is chairing the African Union,” he told reporters today. “And we can open the African market for Armenian products also. He said Egypt is ready to promote Armenian goods at the African Union.
Dessouki, who took office as ambassador a month ago, says he has met with the President of the Chamber of Commerce in Armenia to understand what Armenia needs and what it can offer to Egypt.
