Cairo - MENA

A deal was signed with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to boost relations between the UN agency and Egypt in the coming period, Egyptian Transport Minister Saad el Gioushi said on Wednesday.

Speaking to MENA correspondent in London, Gioushi said Egypt's membership in the IMO executive council is crucial because it supports its role in the shipping industry.

Gioushi thanked the Egyptian Embassy in London for its strenuous efforts to campaign for Egypt ahead of the elections of the IMO executive council, slated for Friday.

The deal will contribute to boosting technical cooperation between Egypt and the IMO, he said.
