The training introduced participants to the concepts of leadership, authority and leadership principles in large companies, in addition to talking about leadership transformation and exemplary leadership practices.

Dina Talaat, the director of the Center for Governance at the National Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development,  praised the participants and their leadership experiences, which they shared with her during discussions on the sidelines of the lecture.

Talaat explained that the fellowship is a model mechanism that complements the Egyptian government’s efforts to enhance the role of youth locally, regionally, continentally and internationally by providing all forms of support, rehabilitation and training, in addition to empowering youth in leadership positions and benefiting from their abilities and ideas.

Hassan El-Ghazaly, the general coordinator of the fellowship, added that the third edition is being held under the slogan “South-South Cooperation, South and Youth of the Non-Aligned Movement.” This focus brings participants together to sit at one table to discuss the lessons learned from the Non-Aligned Movement. They also discussed the movement’s impact on the world in light of past conflicts, and how to revive the principles of non-alignment to address present needs from a youth perspective.

The Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership is held under the auspices of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.

This year’s training was organised in cooperation with the National Institute of Governance and Sustainable Development at the Ministry of Planning.

NAM is a forum comprised of 120 world states that are not aligned with or against any major power bloc.

In April 1955, representatives from 29 governments of Asian and African nations gathered in Bandung, Indonesia, to discuss peace and the role of the Third World in the Cold War, economic development and decolonisation.

The core principles of the Bandung Conference were political self-determination, mutual respect for sovereignty, non-aggression, non-interference in internal affairs and equality.

Drawing on the principles agreed at the Bandung Conference in 1955, the NAM was established in 1961 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, through an initiative by then Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Yugoslav President Josip Broz Tito. This led to the first conference of the heads of state of non-aligned countries. The term non-aligned movement first appeared in the fifth conference in 1976.
