Immigration Min.: Egypt seeks more jobs for its workforce in African labor market

Minister of Immigration Nabila Makram said Egypt seeks to gain entry for Egyptian labor into Africa and there is communication with the Economy Ministry to encourage the implementation of more investment projects there. 

The minister made her remarks on Monday 14/1/2019 during a meeting of the Parliament’s African Affairs Committee chaired by Tarek Radwan to discuss the role of the Immigration Ministry in creating more job opportunities for the Egyptian workforce in the African labor market and its efforts to build stronger communication channels with Egyptians living across the African continent.

Makram said that Egypt’s Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics estimate the number of Egyptians living in Africa at 46,000, including 40,000 in South Africa alone. These official figures are not definite for they do not cover the number of the unregistered Egyptian workforce in the continent, she noted. 

The minister reaffirmed that there should be a channel to promote contacts with the African peoples, noting that she will pay visits to a number of African countries, topped by South Africa, in the coming period.

Makram added that Al Azhar plays a very vital role in the African continent.
