Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi arrived on Saturday in China where he is a guest of honor at the Group of Twenty (G-20) Summit.

Shortly after arriving in Hangzhou at the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping, President Sisi met with the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) Christine Lagarde to discuss a recent tentative program aimed at bolstering Egypt’s economy.

During the meeting, which was attended by top Egyptian officials, Lagarde praised Egypt’s efforts at economic perform and vowed the IMF would continue supporting Egypt, announced the Presidency’s spokesperson.

Meanwhile, Sisi stressed the importance of ensuring any policy would protect low-income earners in Egypt. The IMF and Egypt reached a preliminary $US 12 billion agreement in August.

On Sunday, President Sisi met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and declared that the two countries would continue working together in various fields.

The Japanese Prime Minister also confirmed President Sisi’s invitation to his country. Sisi is expected to visit Japan in February 2017 to confirm joint projects between the two countries.

President Sisi is also expected to hold talks with a number of other world leaders at the G-20 Summit, which is being held between 4 and 5 September. Sisi’s attendance marks the first Egyptian presence since 2008.
