Egypt in the News on 14 January 2021

It’s a mixed bag in the foreign press again this morning: Reuters picks up Human Right Watch’s plea to incoming US President Joe Biden to suspend arms sales to Egypt, and also spotlights MP Farida El Shobashy’s leadership of the House during the inaugural session of the new parliament earlier this week, becoming the first woman ever to take charge of the assembly.

Meanwhile, African business mag How We Made It In Africa profiles our good friend Magda Habib and how she set up Dawi Clinics, which aims to become “the Starbucks of healthcare in Egypt.” Habib, one of the first guests of Enterprise’s Morning Routine column, and the business’ co-founders hope to expand its branch count to 50 in the next two or three years.
