Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi is set to meet with 3,000 students from several Egyptian universities, scientists, and a number of officials during the sixth National Youth Conference.
The conference, titled “Innovate…Advance”, will be held at Cairo University from 28-29 July.
The Ask the President initiative announced the closing of the process of submitting questions to Al-Sisi, which he will answer during the upcoming conference.
The initiative opened its doors last Tuesday for a week, encouraging students of different Egyptian universities to apply their inquiries to the president.
Al-Sisi received, according to state-owned newspaper Al-Ahram, more than 600,000 questions, most of them by Egyptian youths.
The initiative was first launched last year. The service, through its website and Facebook and Twitter pages, offers users the opportunity to submit their inquiries to Al-Sisi, along with their full name, governate, phone number, Facebook or Twitter personal account, and e-mail.
Egypt’s National Youth Conference kicked off for the first time in October 2016 in Sharm El-Sheikh with an aim to openly discuss internal issues of the country, with the attendance of officials, ministers, and youth.
