With the support and participation of the UAE Government, Egypt will host the Egypt Government Excellence Conference 2018 in Cairo from July 3 to July 4.
Sponsored by Egyptian President Abdul Fattah Al Sisi, the country’s first event of its kind seeks to modernise government work, activate a strategic partnership between the two nations, and facilitate exchange of experience between them with the aim of building a model of administration that can be replicated across the Arab world.
The conference will convene senior government officials from Egypt and the UAE to exchange experience and success stories.
The conference is the first step in implementing a memorandum of understanding related to developing government work, signed by Egypt’s Ministry of Planning, Follow-up and Administrative Reform and the UAE Ministry of Cabinet Affairs and the Future during the World Government Summit in February in Dubai.
Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and the Future, who will head the UAE delegation attending the conference, said: “The conference and the UAE’s participation therein demonstrate the UAE Government’s keenness to fulfil the directives of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to forge a strong strategic government partnership between the UAE and Egypt, step up cooperation and strengthen the long-standing and deep-rooted relations between our two brotherly countries across various fields.”
Dr Hala Al Saeed, Egypt’s Minister of Planning, Follow-up and Administrative Reform, said: “The ambitious plans to modernise government work in Egypt aim to build an efficient and effective administration system that can easily adapt to local and international developments in order to provide high-quality government services that leverage state-of-the-art technology to achieve customer happiness.”
