Nasr: Govt acting to empower women & youth


Following directives by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, the Egyptian government has been acting to empower youth and women to be part of an integrated system that supports entrepreneurs, Investment Minister Sahar Nasr said. 

Nasr was speaking in a conference on entrepreneurship at Misr University for Science and Technology on Sunday 11/11/2018 when she stressed the importance of turning dreams of youth into reality, noting this is meant to support emerging companies. 

The government wants to get firsthand information about ideas of youth and challenges facing them through a "Your Idea. Your Company" initiative, the minister added. 

It is all about partnership with entrepreneurs and offering funds that could reach up to 500,000 pounds, added Nasr.

The investment law includes tax and non-tax incentives that could reach up to 50 % and are offered to businessmen, Nasr said.
