The three-day international economic conference kicked off on Friday in the country's resort city Sharm El-Sheikh. Its aim is to strengthen the country's economy by drawing foreign investors.
"We can now say that by the end of the second day of the forum, the amount of investment in the Egyptian economy will be more than $30 billion," Ashraf Arabi told RIA Novosti.
The Minister also noted that it is expected the raised funds will significantly improve the living standards of the Egyptians by 2019, most of whom live below the poverty line.
On Saturday, the Egyptian government and investment company from the UAE, Gulf Investment Corporation concluded a deal on construction of a new administrative capital of Egypt in the country's east.
Egypt is in need of foreign aid to achieve stability following four years of political turmoil after the 2011 Arab Spring uprising against long-standing Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.
