President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is set to launch the governmental development programme "Egypt's vision 2030" on Wednesday in a public speech in Cairo's Al Galaa Theatre, state owned news agency MENA reported on Tuesday.
The programme, which was organised by the planning ministry, aims to formulate a vision of sustainable development based on the country's youth that would be implemented regardless of any changes of government or leadership.
The project also aspires to revive Egypt's historical role leading the Arab region and to provide a decent standard of living for citizens, according to MENA.
Wednesday's event will be attended by many public figures including youth representatives and top state officials, the news agency reported.
On 13 February El-Sisi addressed the newly convened parliament and listed some of his achievements since his inauguration in June 2014, including on the economy, infrastructure, and foreign policy.
The president also urged for education, health, and media – in addition to renewed religious discourse – to be at the top of the parliament’s agenda, adding that "hope is a patriotic duty," as well as calling on the MPs to build a "strong, youthful country."
Egypt's cabinet was supposed to present his cabinet's programme to the parliament either by the end of February or in early March. However, some press reports suggested that it might be postponed until a further date because the parliament is still reviewing its internal bylaws.
