The Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum (EMGF) reviewed the situation of the headquarters (HQ) agreement between Egypt and the forum during its first meeting after its official establishment.

The forum also discussed the prospect of enrolling new members and observers to the forum in light of the interest many countries have expressed. The members also reviewed the forum’s roadmap for 2021 which included the work plan for the Gas Industry Advisory Committee (GIAC) as well as detailed plans for its technical, economic, and organizational subcommittees. They also approved requests for two additional members to join GIAC bringing the number of its members to 29. This further establishes EMGF as an effective organization to achieve energy cooperation in the Eastern Mediterranean.
