According to Rashwan, national security and foreign policy issues will top the agenda amid regional tensions.

These issues will be included in the dialogue's discussions per President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi's directives during the Egyptian Family Iftar banquet in 2024, according to Rashwan.

He added that the dialogue would formulate proposals to reinforce Egypt's steadfast positions, safeguard its national security and territorial integrity, and bolster support for the Palestinian cause while opposing any attempts to liquidate it.

Rashwan said that the Board of Trustees will form a committee to review the government's progress in implementing the outcomes of the first phase of the dialogue, which ended in 2023.

In January 2024, President El-Sisi called for the launch of a second round of the National Dialogue to tackle challenges facing the economy.

The National Dialogue was launched in May 2022 upon a call from the president to address Egypt's diverse political, economic, and social issues.
