Dr. Nevine El-Kabbaj:
Dr. Reverend Andre Zaki is a national leader advocating for citizenship and aspiring towards a modern civil state. The evangelical presence in Egypt contributes significantly to spreading awareness, education, and providing social services to the Egyptian society. Egypt has managed to overcome development gaps thanks to the awareness of its people and the determination of the state. We aim for comprehensive development in the New Republic through the efforts of all its citizens. We continue the building process using principles and practices of governance and information technology to confront any challenges.
The Minister stated during her speech, “Egypt proves day by day that it plays an active and strategic role in the region that no one denies. It stands as a formidable lion in the area, and its role in the Palestinian cause illustrates the strength of the Egyptian people who support the oppressed in a time when human rights are being neglected.” She clarified, “The term of the new republic extends to human development, social investment, enhancing work and production methodologies, and integrating societal groups into the development process. Each individual has a responsibility, and recent initiatives impact our people in Upper Egypt and rural areas, where there is a real breakthrough in various aspects.”
During his speech, Dr. Abdel Moneim Saeed stated, “The pressures facing our country now make us think about achieving the Vision 2030, and Egypt should be among the leading countries in the world.” He emphasized, “Despite the challenges, Egypt has achieved many accomplishments on all fronts.” He explained, “Identity is a great blessing for Egyptians, but we feel that it is not getting its historical due in the contemporary world.” He added, “The greatest development in the New Republic is the construction of roads and bridges, expanding the concept of knowledge between governorates and placing the state at the forefront of threats directed at it in Sinai.” He clarified, “During the era of Presidents Nasser and Sadat, there were only 6 tunnels.” He further added, “Six million Egyptians participated in the construction process in recent years, the majority of whom were young people.”
