EAPD’s Main Partners


The African Bank for Development (ABD)

The cooperation between ABD and the Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa is based on a Memorandum of Understanding concluded in 1998. ABD was amongst EAPD’s early partners, and supported the EAPD since its inception. The EAPD-ABD cooperation is the first concrete activity stemming from the MOU signed between the two.

Apart from cooperation in traditional domains, the EAPD seeks to bolster cooperation with the bank by identifying new opportunities, such as: dispatching experts, organizing training courses in the fields of health, in addition to supporting the Egyptian private sector’s activities in Africa.


The Islamic Development Bank (IDB)

The EAPD attaches great importance to the cooperation with the IDB; as it is considered one of the most flexible financial organizations supporting development in Africa. IDB was also one of the earliest development partners of the EFTCA.

The EAPD upgraded the cooperation framework with the bank as the Secretary General signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Head of the bank group in Jeddah on April 19th, 2015. The MOU aims at supporting partnerships exchanging expertise and expanding the domains of cooperation.

The scope of cooperation between EAPD and the IDB was expanded to include the different entities in the Islamic Development Bank Group comprising: the Islamic Research & Training Institute (IRTI), the Islamic Corporation for Development of the Private Sector (ICD), the Islamic Corporation for Insurance of Investment and Export Credit (ICIEC), the International Islamic Trade Finance                            Corporation (ITFC) and the Islamic Solidarity Fund for Development (ISFD).



In 1998, Egypt and Japan signed a Framework Agreement for Triangular Cooperation with Africa. The agreement was implemented, throughout the past years, by the Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa (EFTCA), and the JICA (Japanese International Cooperation Agency). The implementation focused on organising training courses for African cadres.

EAPD also endeavored to widen the scope of development-oriented partners to boost the activities of the Egyptian private sector in Africa. The EAPD attempted to facilitate the cooperation of the Egyptian private sector with counterparts, who have booming economic activities in Africa, from Asia and Latin American

The Arab Fund for Technical Assistance of the League of Arab Nations

The cooperation between the EAPD and the Fund was initiated and maintained based upon a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Fund and the EFTCA in 1998.

The AFTA co-funded with the EAPD, training courses in the domains of diplomacy and health.
