Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif stated that the increased suicide rate Egypt is currently witnessing is due to "personal problems" individuals face.
However, he assured that the government will be working on finding solutions to citizens’ problems, especially unemployment. However, he added that commiting suicide isn’t the correct decision to undergo at the end of the day.
Moreover, Nazif announced that unemployment is the main concern of the government, thus it is working on attracting businessmen to invest to put an end to the crisis and provide youths with job opportunities.
Although he stated that governmental recruitment isn’t as it used to be in the past, Nazif added that the government is providing almost 700 thousand job opportunities each year, which makes job hunting not as complicated.
