Vocational schools accreditation body gets cabinet approval

CABINET WATCH- Vocational schools accreditation body receives cabinet approval: A draft law recently drawn up to establish a government body to accredit institutions offering technical learning and training programs received a nod from the Madbouly cabinet in its weekly meeting yesterday, according to a statement. Government schools and private institutions, which will both be under the authority’s oversight, will have no more than five years to meet the authority’s quality standards and obtain accreditation once the bill makes it through the House of Representatives and its executive regulations are published. We have background on the new authority and its role here.

A proposal to set up an Egyptian-Sudanese livestock farming JV was also approved “in principle” at yesterday’s meeting. The company will be jointly owned by Egypt’s Holding Company for Food Industries (HCFI) and Sudan’s Etegahat Group. The statement gave no further details on the JV beyond saying that its products will be either sold in Egypt’s domestic market or earmarked for export.
