President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi received an honorary doctorate from the Bucharest University of Economic Studies on Wednesday.
The university’s decision is based on El-Sisi’s role to lead Egypt to overcome a difficult period of turmoil and achieve stability, development and social and economic reforms with mega projects being implemented in different fields, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said.
Officials of the university hailed Sisi’s efforts to improve Egypt's educational system with its primary and university stages through essential academic reform programs that match the latest international standards.
Earlier on Wednesday, El-Sisi headed for Romania after winding up a three-day visit to Belarus.
The university also praised El-Sisi’s effective role to enhance peace and cooperation at the international level to combat terrorism and extremism, lauding the president’s efforts to cement ties between Egypt and Romania in all fields.
