Xinhua - 2014-12-07

The main purpose of President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi's expected visit to Beijing is to create a kind of strategic partnership with China, Egypt's International Cooperation Minister Naglaa al-Ahwani told Xinhua on Saturday.
China is now attractive to the whole world, Naglaa al-Ahwani said during an interview, adding that there is a mutual strong desire for further cooperation between the two states.
"China is one of the most important states and the most growing countries across the world with a very huge potential for development," she said.
Egypt has recently established a cabinet unit specified for China led by Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab, including a number of key ministers as members to study fields of cooperation with China.
Egypt seeks to attract more Chinese investments, Ahwani said. "The concerned ministers provided a number of project proposals to be tackled with the Chinese side before, during and after Sisi's visit to Beijing."
