Welcome to the official website of the Egyptian Embassy in Guatemala. In ancient times, both Egypt and Guatemala were centres of human civilizations which realized significant achievements in the fields of astronomy, architecture among other fields. In modern times, the two countries established diplomatic relations in 1970, and since then are working to upgrade bilateral relations to its full potential.
Our objective is to enhance bilateral relations on political, economic and cultural fields. In fact, both countries enjoy significant economic opportunities, and therefore we focus on boosting and diversifying bilateral trade. Thanks to the geographical location of Egypt, the free trade agreements it enjoys with Arab and African markets, and the size of its own market, Egypt could serve as a gateway for Guatemalan exports to the Middle East and Africa.
Moreover, we work closely with the Guatemalan government on political issues of mutual interest within the United Nations system and other global organizations as well as on bilateral level. Egypt and Guatemala also share the same challenges of achieving sustainable development, empowerment of women, promoting economic growth, and contributing to regional and international peace and security.
We are passionate about our work and we are looking forward to promote the bonds of friendship and common interests between Egypt and Guatemala.
