The European Union Delegation to Egypt, officially opened in 1978, deals with the broad political and economic agenda between the EU and Egypt, and in the context of the European Neighbourhood Policy plays a role in the implementation and monitoring of the EU-Egypt partnership priorities.
The Delegation interacts with the government ministries but also with civil society and non-governmental organisations and reports to Brussels on developments in Egypt. An important focus is the management of the projects under the different development co-operation programmes concerning Egypt. The Delegation manages a development co-operation portfolio of over €1.3 billion in Egypt.
The Delegation provides information about the EU, its policies and positions to interested parties through various means, including its website and social media platforms. The Delegation Press and Information Officer is in constant contact with the local and foreign media.
