Amb. Ihab Fahmy
Deputy Secretary General
“The improvement of the living conditions in our region, where urban growth is rapidly increasing due to demographic and environmental pressure, is key to sustainable development. Optimizing trade routes over land and sea and facilitating closer cooperation among Member States are crucial for fostering long-term sustainable economic growth. The promotion of flagship initiatives in the field of transport, especially in maritime transport, as well as of sustainable and innovative urban projects, which serve as best practice examples, remains as one of the main priorities on the UfM agenda”.
Ambassador Ihab Fahmy is the Deputy Secretary General of the Union for the Mediterranean in charge of Transport and Urban Development since July 2016.
