Romanian prime minister Nicolae Ciucă, who is on a trip to Egypt this weekend, today had one-on-one talks with his counterpart Mostafa Madbouly, followed by a meeting of the two official delegations. The talks looked at ways to boost bilateral political, commercial and economic relations, with special emphasis on agriculture, according to Radio Romania’s correspondent in Egypt. The Romanian prime minister said the Russian invasion of Ukraine affected not only the countries in the region and efforts must thus be made together, so that people, economies and countries should not suffer. Egypt’s prime minister told Ciucă about the level of competitiveness of the Egyptian industry and agriculture and aspects related to the fertiliser and petrochemical industry. On Sunday, prime minister  Ciucă  is due to meet the president of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and the minister for oil and mineral resources Tarek El Molla for talks on energy projects and to attend an Egypt-Romania business forum and the signing of a number of bilateral agreements.
