Speaking at the opening of the forum, the minister said that Egypt's ties with the Nile Basin countries are based on initiatives among citizens and the NGOs.
The trade unions play important role in promoting cooperation among the Nile Basin countries, he said, calling on Egypt's workers to be united and maintain cooperation with the African and Arab trade union organizations.
