Egypt is planning to form two new ministries for entrepreneurs and Egyptian expatriates' affairs, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi said on Thursday in Germany, where he is currently on a two-day visit.

One of the new ministries will provide "technical, financial and marketing support" to small-and medium-sized business projects to help provide job opportunities for young people in Egypt, where unemployment rate stands at nearly 13%, El-Sisi was quoted as saying by state news agency MENA..

The other new creation will handle affairs of Egyptian expatriates.

"Egyptian expats have become in critical need of a ministry to sponsor their affairs, provide full support to them, and link them to their homeland," El-Sisi said.

The Egyptian leader made the statement during a meeting with the Egyptian community in Berlin, as he concluded his visit to the German capital, where he has held talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Joachim Gauck and penned a mega deal with German engineering giant Siemens.

Get government out of the way!
Rather than increasing the size of government (more red tape), the government which seems to want to control all aspects of life should be eliminating agencies and removing regulations and laws. When someone says, 'We must control...,' he should be asked, Why?' It is impossible to encourage individual initiative if the government is going to stand in the way. The government is faced with serious problems. It needs to reduce its role in people's lives so it can deal with matters only the government can do. Reduce the intrusion of government, and the pressure on the people will be lessened and new opportunities for corruption eliminated.

Never Heard of it?
Government is getting heavy on top. Why you leave it to people to form union and service their own group. Shame on our Administrators and their knowledge. Management is part of social science. It is important subject in colleges and universities.

Now we have 40
Though the idea of supporting small businesses and expats sound good; we will end up with 40 ministers, which is more than double the US, UK, or China. Why not create specialized departments under limited number of ministries as most successful counties do? Unless it's intended to make the Prime Minister job even harder ... Now he may find work for job-speakers!
