Egypt's cabinet launched a new interactive communication platform entitled: ‘Hewar’ (Dialogue), to allow Egyptians to contribute to the decision making process in the country.

In a statement, Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly revealed that this new platform gives Egyptians the opportunity to voice their opinions on societal issues and transform their ideas into initiatives on ground.

Like other societal dialogue platforms in Japan, Estonia, Australia, Canada, Finland, Singapore, Denmark, UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Oman, Hewar will showcase the opinions of experts and investors on current economic policies taken by the government.

Through 'Hewar', the citizens who elaborate new creative solutions will also communicate easily with decision makers.

The statement noted that the ideas on the website will be reviewed by experts who will explore their practicality to be transformed into plans for implementation.

Hewar is divided into several sections, which allow registered users to voice their opinions and concerns on current matters, and provide them with a space to turn their ideas into reality, the statement explained.

It added that the Arabic-language website is currently hosting conversations about the Egyptian investment climate, overpopulation, among others. And registered users have also started sharing ideas and initiatives that they believe would be beneficial to the country and its economy.

These feature suggestions on building smart waiting areas, implementing sustainable infrastructure, and improving the public education system.
