On 25 December, Daily News Egypt exclusively reported that a high-level Japanese business mission is expected to visit Egypt next March to discuss furthering joint investment and trade relations with Egypt, as well as meeting with Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, according to Takashi Tsunemi, managing director of the JETRO in Egypt.
