The PM explained that the old system of education was based upon dictation and memorising, which does not suit Egypt and does not help to achieve the objectives of the sustainable development Egypt strategy 2030.
He affirmed that Egypt is working to adopt an educational system which aims at equipping the citizens, especially the youth with qualifications to prepare them for the job market domestically and abroad.
“This is possible only if we connect the educational process with the modern methods of teaching and learning which count on technology.
He stressed that Egypt is expecting significant contributions on all levels, as developing the education is not merely a decision taken by the official, but it is a national project for the advancement of the citizens, linking them with the world. “We aspire an educational system which supplies values, helps the citizens to preserve their religious and cultural identities as well as the love for their country, while keeping them opened to the world and the technology of the future but supporting them on the path of innovation and excellence,” PM added.
Dr. Madbouli concluded by saying that he would be embarrassed to thank the Egyptian experts for coming home and attending this conference. “I know that Egypt, which embraced your first scientific and educational steps, is engraved in the hearts of each of you, and that your wish to achieve an educational renaissance in Egypt is no less than ours in the government, And I am confident that you have a lot to offer to your country, and that none of you would not miss contributing in making the future of Egypt,” he said.
