Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly has issued two crucial decisions to establish ministerial groups dedicated to human and industrial development.

The decision to form the Ministerial Group for Human Development, led by the Deputy Prime Minister for Human Development and the Minister of Health and Population, includes a comprehensive membership comprising key ministers from Planning, Economic Development, International Cooperation, Youth and Sports, Higher Education, Scientific Research, Local Development, Social Solidarity, Endowments, Work, Culture, Education, and Technical Education.

This group is tasked with strategizing and implementing national initiatives across health, education, culture, sports, and religious discourse. Responsibilities extend to aligning technical education with labor market demands, overseeing health insurance initiatives, and fostering cultural development initiatives to enhance Egypt's soft power. The group will also focus on youth development and promoting moderate religious discourse among the populace.

Meetings of the Ministerial Group for Human Development are set to occur weekly, with the Prime Minister attending when available. A technical secretariat will support its operations, ensuring periodic reporting to the Prime Minister on progress and recommendations.

Simultaneously, the decision to establish the Ministerial Group for Industrial Development, headed by the Deputy Prime Minister for Industrial Development and the Ministers of Industry and Transport, includes a lineup encompassing Environment, Military Production, Electricity, Renewable Energy, Local Development, Housing Utilities, Public Business Sector, Petroleum, Mineral Resources, and Investment and Foreign Trade.

This group is charged with formulating and executing strategies to enhance industrial growth, attract private investment, and increase local industrial components. It will oversee industrial land development, streamline approval processes for industrial projects, and coordinate efforts to boost industrial exports.

Similar to its human development counterpart, the Ministerial Group for Industrial Development will convene weekly, with a technical secretariat ensuring operational efficiency and regular reporting to the Prime Minister.

Both groups reserve the right to invite additional experts and officials to meetings as necessary, demonstrating a proactive approach to tackling Egypt's developmental challenges through targeted ministerial oversight.
