The agreements were signed during a ceremony held at the Grand Serail in Beirut in the presence of Lebanese and Egyptian officials.

The Egyptian prime minister said that Egypt is ready to help Lebanon in electricity, oil and gas projects and other areas as well.
Meanwhile, Hariri said that he discussed with Madbouly ways of removing all obstacles facing cooperation between the two sides, especially the complicated procedures of establishing businesses in Lebanon and Egypt.
Hariri also agreed with Madbouly to open a direct dialogue between ministers of the two countries to solve any issues facing investments by businessmen in Egypt and Lebanon.
Madbouly arrived in Lebanon on Wednesday evening in a three-day official visit, where he conducted negotiations with Lebanese officials tackling various issues.
