The three-day COMESA conference kicked off in Sharm El-Sheikh on Tuesday, with a focus on discussing investment in east and southern Africa, and the facilities needed to achieve these objectives.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said during his speech at the African Entrepreneurship Session that all countries are attentive to the role of youth and Egypt has made an important experience during its hosting of the World Youth Forum.

He pointed out that Egypt aims to create a healthy environment for entrepreneurs and to provide them with easy financing commensurate with their potential.

“We have saved LE200 billion to support small, medium, and micro youth projects over the past four years, at a rate of LE50 billion annually, despite the economic conditions, for our confidence in young people and entrepreneurs,” Sisi said.
