Another night of miscellany on last night’s talk shows

It was another night of miscellany on last night’s talk shows, with no overarching theme or topic of discussion emerging.

Increasing the private sector’s role in the economy was the topic of a roundtable discussion between Egyptian Businessmen’s Association Chairman Ali Eissa, industrial investors syndicate head Mohamed El Genidy and head of the Federation of Egyptian Industries’ real estate development division Tarek Shoukry on Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 1:31).

Trade and Industry Minister Amr Nassar’s visit to Moscow this week and progress on the Russian Industrial Zone were the main topic of discussion for the head of Egypt’s trade office in Moscow, Nasser Hamed (watch, runtime: 7:04).

House Rep. Essam El Fekky is pushing a private member’s bill that would bar medical professionals from simultaneously working at government hospitals and private institutions in an attempt to keep doctors “more focused” on serving government hospitals, said Masaa DMC’s Osama Kamal (watch, runtime: 16:52).

Mo Salah’s latest “crisis” in Egypt: Masaa DMC’s Osama Kamal went on a tirade against Sports Minister Ashraf Sobhy over a Gharbiya youth center’s decision to suspend Mohamed Salah’s membership because the Liverpool forward was late in paying the EGP 57 annual membership fee. The center restored his membership once the fee was paid, but Kamal was beside himself that authorities did not intervene (watch, runtime: 1:27).
