Egypt’s Emigration Minister Nabila Makram announced on Wednesday the mechanism of participating in the second conference of Egyptian entities abroad, which is due to be held in mid August.
The minister announced the link - https://forms.gle/5b21v1x2WSeWfjbL6 - for taking part in the event.
The conference is meant to promote the political leadership's vision and promote the national ‘Decent Life
Initiative’ for developing Egypt's countryside.
The Decent Life Initiative aims to improve the standards of living, infrastructure, and services within Egypt’s lesser developed governorates, targeting 58 percent of Egypt’s 102 million population who live in 4,658 villages across the country.
Due to the enormous volume of work required, the 4,658 villages have been divided into three phases of nearly 1,500 villages each, with the first phase, whose budget is estimated at EGP 250 billion, due to be completed by the end of the 2021-22 fiscal year.
The initiative’s budget is estimated at EGP 700 billion, and the stakeholders include state agencies and ministries, NGOs, and the private sector.
Makram said the conference will also highlight the role played by Egyptian expats to support the state plans launched by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.
The conference also aims to maintain direct contact between the state and all Egyptian entities abroad, she added.
