It’s that time of year ladies and gents! The time when views will be exchanged about the most important issues that concern the youth sector and the Egyptian state. It’s time for the 7th National Youth Conference, which will be held on July 30-31, 2019 in the New Administrative Capital, under the slogan “Innovate … Advance”.
If you recall, 2018’s youth conference was held this time last year at Cairo University.

In addition, there will be several public figures, media professionals, business people, ambassadors of African Union (AU) countries, and representatives of international organisations.
The State Information Service page states, “On the sidelines of the conference, the donors conference on the initiative of Hayat Karima, or ‘dignified life’, will be held for the first time to emphasise the Egyptian state’s keenness to eradicate poverty and provide a decent life for Egyptians in poorer villages in cooperation with private sectors, civil institutions and development partners.” Other points on the docket include discussing economic reform measures, the state budget 2019-2020, administrative reforms to improve macro-economic indicators, digital transformation, government marketing, national projects, and the graduation ceremony of the first batch of graduates from the African Youth Rehabilitation Program.
