Egypt receives the chairmanship of the Group of 77 and China for 2018

Egypt is due to receive the chairmanship of the Group of 77 and China for 2018, starting Friday, during a ceremony at the UN headquarters in New York, the Foreign Ministry said.

In a statement quoted by the Middle East News Agency (MENA), Egypts permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Amr Abu Al-Atta, will take over the presidency from Ecuador, which led the group last year.

The Spokesman for the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Egypts presidency of the Group of 77 and China during the current year comes at an important stage in the course of multilateral action, especially within the United Nations system, under the reform phase of the Organization, whether in terms of development, administrative reform or peace and security.
