CAIRO - 10 February 2020: Egypt's Planning Minister Hala el Saeid met Monday with Richard Dictus, the UN Resident Coordinator in Egypt to discuss ways to finance sustainable development goals.
Funding remains a challenge in the face of efforts to achieve sustainable development, Saeid said.
Cairo is keen on attracting more foreign investments to help overcome this challenge, she noted.
Saeid stressed the need for financial foundations to unify efforts and work in line with a plan of action.
Indeed, the UN acts to facilitate efforts exerted to develop an integrated national funding system and outline strategies that heed sustainable development goals, the minister further said.
Dictus, for his part, said the UN's Sustainable Development Goals Fund (SDG Fund) will support regional offices to help develop financing strategies and suitable plans to achieve those goals
