The Immigration and Egyptian Expatriate Affairs Minister, Nabila Makram, has revealed plans to create an up-to-date database on the number of Egyptians abroad through registering all work permits of nationals working overseas. ...
The wants and needs of Egyptians in Africa, according to Makram, are not widely known due to a skewed focus on expatriates in other regions like the Gulf. The ministry plans to boost Egypt's ties with African countries through a strategy of public diplomacy and will focus in particular on enabling Africans to study in Egypt.
