Egypt’s National Youth Conference dominates the nation’s airwaves

The National Youth Conference was (expectedly) the topic du jour on the airwaves last night. Participants in the one-day event included members of the Presidential Leadership Program (PLP), university students, young politicians, young technicians working in national projects, and young physicians and businessmen.

You can watch Masaa DMC’s coverage of the conference here (runtime: 28:02).

“Ask the President” was the highlight of the conference: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi answered several questions about regional terrorism threats and the progress of the education reform program during the “Ask the President” session. Egypt has some 23 mn students, more than 50k schools, and about 1.3 mn teachers, El Sisi said, stressing that reforming education is not an easy task (watch, runtime: 5:36). We have more of El Sisi’s most important statements in this morning’s Speed Round, below.
