State Secretary Gebers meets Egypt’s Ambassador

On 30 August 2019, State Secretary Leonie Gebers welcomed the Egyptian Ambassador, H.E. Dr. Badr Abdellaty, at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. State Secretary Gebers highlighted that over the past few years, the two countries had launched important international labour and social policy initiatives in the framework of their partnership. She added that she was delighted about Egypt’s interest in continuing its close cooperation with Germany.

The talks focused on the topics of skilled labour immigration and vocational training, and especially on support for young people during the transition from school to work and on the design of vocational training systems geared to the needs of the labour market. Ambassador Abdelatty stressed the potential of his country in the area of vocational training for young people and in this regard welcomed enhanced cooperation on the basis of the new Skilled Immigration Act (Fachkräfteeinwanderungsgesetz). In his view, this would further deepen the existing very successful economic cooperation between the two countries.
