The Forum for Cultural Dialogue at the Evangelical Coptic Authority concluded the eighth conference of the Arab-European dialogue, titled “Religion and Society,” on Friday, with the presence of Dr. Reverend Andre Zaki, head of the Evangelical community in Egypt and head of the Evangelical Coptic Authority for Social Services. The conference took place at the headquarters of the Evangelical Coptic Authority for Social Services and included the participation of 17 countries from the European Union, Russia, and the Arab region, who are members of the Arab-European dialogue.
Throughout its sessions, the dialogue discussed the most significant challenges facing society locally and globally over three days, along with several field visits that included a visit to His Excellency the Minister of Endowments, Dr. Mukhtar Gomaa, and the Egyptian Center for Thought and Strategic Studies.
