In a statement on Saturday, the trustee board thanked the president for describing the recommendations as "encouraging" and instructing the government to study them in order to put them into practice.

El-Sisi made his remarks about the national dialogue's recommendations earlier today during a tour in Beni Suef, where he inaugurated a host of development projects.

The recommendations, which cover a wide range of public issues, were delivered to the president in mid-August following broad discussions extended over five weeks.

In a speech in Beni Suef, President El-Sisi asserted that his belief in the ability of the Egyptians to find common grounds motivated him to call for a national dialogue.

The trustee board also expressed its appreciation for the social protection measures announced by the president on Saturday to alleviate the financial strains on citizens amid the current global economic crises.

"These new measures demonstrate that the voices of Egyptians are being heard," noted the board.
