Warm and cordial ties between Egypt and India are characterized by their shared civilization, culture, and economy as well as their close relationships with one another. Shared cultural values, a dedication to promoting economic growth, cooperation in the defense and security sectors, and convergence on local and international issues form the foundation of the multifaceted relationship. At both international and multilateral platforms, the two nations collaborate closely.

In FY 2021–2022, bilateral trade between Egypt and India reached a record high of USD 7.26 billion. With 3.74 billion Indian exports to Egypt and 3.52 billion imports from Egypt to India, the trade was essentially balanced.
