In the context of the minister of Emigration and Egyptian Expatriate Affairs efforts to launch the initiative “Egypt: the Beginning of the Road” to benefit from scientists and experts, who have learned in Egypt, Minister Nabila Makram accompanied an Australian delegation on a visit to the Galala University.
The visit included a delegation from Monash University, including Nizar Fargo, Vice-Chancellor of Monash University for the Middle East and North Africa Affairs, and representatives from the Australian Embassy, as well as Egypt’s Ambassador to Australia Mohamed Khairat.
On her part, Makram said that the visit aims to highlight the university, which is one of the giant national development projects launched by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi. Built on an excellent geographical location, with a direct view of the Red Sea coast, this project is qualified to become an international center on Egyptian soil.
She pointed out that the initiative aims to take advantage of all scholars and leading figures around the world, who studied in Egypt like “Fargo”, to transfer his experiences to the country.
The Australian delegation listened to a detailed explanation of the projects implemented along the Galala road, from residential and sports cities, factories, power station, printing press, bridges, and new roads, as well as inspecting the University of Galala, which is scheduled to become a giant scientific edifice.
