He added that Germany will continue to be an essential partner to Egypt in several important areas to strengthen political relations and support the economy, adding that Berlin will continue to invest in strengthening the wide network of German schools, and help the German University and other educational institutions in Egypt.

Nunn said that he is looking forward to start a new phase of this prosperous bilateral cooperation by helping build modern Egypt through the establishment of many giant national projects; including the new administrative capital and other new cities coming in accordance to the latest technological methods and road networks.

He pointed out that these projects increase the opportunities of local and international investment.
