The meeting was also attended by Eng. Sharif Al Olama, Under-Secretary at the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, and several officials from the ministry and representatives of the UAE Embassy in Cairo.
The meeting discussed documents related to joint Arab electricity market governance and two agreements: the “General Agreement” and the “Joint Arab Electricity Market Agreement.”
