The Agency's promotes triangular cooperation through 2 axes:
1. Seeking to update and maximize the benefit from existing agreements (previously concluded between the Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa and donor countries and institutions).
2. Exploring cooperation with new development partners. As such, the Agency has sought to maximize triangular cooperation with a number of donor countries and institutions, mainly:
⦁ The Islamic Development Bank: the Agency has paid special attention to the Bank, being one of the most flexible financial institutions in promoting development in Africa, and one of the oldest partners of the Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa. The Agency has begun to cooperate with the Bank to establish a permanent Egyptian presence in the health sector in some African countries members of the Bank that are of strategic importance to Egypt. The Agency has also sought to take advantage of the Islamic Corporation for the Insurance of Investment and Export Credit (affiliated to the IDB) to cover the risks of exporting Egyptian products to Africa.
⦁ The Arab Fund for Technical Assistance to African Countries: The Agency reached an agreement with the Fund on the expansion of cooperation activities in the coming period. The Fund has agreed in principle to participate in the organization of training courses during 2015 and 2016.
⦁ Japan: Egypt has signed a framework agreement for triangular cooperation in Africa with Japan in 1998. Activities of cooperation have throughout the past years been implemented by the Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa, and now by the EAPD, in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), especially in the field of organizing training courses for Africans (JICA and EAPD have organized 11 training sessions in the fields of agriculture, electricity, trade, and health). Moreover, new prospects of cooperation proposed by the Agency to JICA are being explored.
⦁ The Agency is engaged in various contacts to explore the prospects of triangular cooperation with many countries of the world with a keen interest in Africa, such as a number of Gulf Arab states, China, India, South Korea, Mexico, and Argentina.
