In speech delivered by Egypt's President Abd El-Fattah El-Sisi at the 42th annual meeting of 77 Group's Foreign Ministers chaired by Egypt this year for the third time, he said that the Egyptian government is prioritizing the uprooting poverty as well as the adoption of advanced technology.
Being among the early founders of the 77 Group in the middle of 1900s, Egypt's foreign policy still rests on cementing cooperation with countries of the south in order to make the international order more humane and fairer and to help eradicate poverty, El-Sisi said.
He called for narrowing the technological gap between the north and south countries by means of accessing the most advanced technologies including artificial technology, Nano technology and biotechnology.
Also, El-Sisi tackled the impact that emerging technology may have on the youth employment, as he urged the group's members to form joint pertinent vision.
El-Sisi referred to climate change's negative impact on sustainable development in developing countries, vowing that Egypt, chairing the 77th Group,  will work hard to implement Paris Climate Change Accord.
He congratulated the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas for chairing the 77th Group next year.
