Madbouly's statement came during a discussion with 90 expat Coptic youths attending the third edition of Logos Coptic Youth Forum 2022, which is held in Wadi Natroun under the title 'Back To Roots'.

The meeting, which was held in the summer headquarters of the Cabinet in New Alamein city, was attended by Pope Tawadros II, the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, newly-appointed Minister of Emigration and Expatriates Affairs Soha Gendy, and a number of bishops and church leaders.

Madbouly discussed with the youths various issues important to national work including  progress on the projects of the presidential initiative Decent Life to upgrade the neediest Egyptian villages, which is home to 60 million people.

Egypt wants to finalise the first of the three phases of the initiative by the end of the year, Madbouly stressed. 

"The aim of the new republic is to achieve the best quality of life for Egyptians," he stressed.

The government's achievements accomplished so far have been made amid harsh circumstances, including the coronavirus pandemic and the impacts of the Russia-Ukraine crisis, he stated.

"But, we are capable of overcoming all these challenges. Other challenges may occur, the most significant of which is building the Egyptian capacity, but [decent Life] an important programme adopted by the government," added Madbouly.

For his part, Pope Tawadros II lauded the construction projects in New Alamein, saying they reflect the overall development Egypt is witnessing.

He called on the youth to disregard the misinformation in foreign media about the situation in Egypt.

The pontiff also praised the Decent Life initiative. 

For her part, Minister Gendy, who was appointed in the most recent Cabinet reshuffle earlier this month, said the premier's meeting with the youth taking part in the Logos Forum shows the government's keenness to shed light on projects being implemented on the ground.
