Cairo - A total of 25 Egyptian female experts agreed on taking part in “Egypt Can (Taa Marbouta)” conference, to be held in Cairo on July 2 and 3 under the auspices of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi. 
“Al Taa Marbouta is your strength” an awareness-raising campaign launched by Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) during the holy month of Ramadan to support and empower Egyptian women and highlight the importance of women's participation in all economic, political and social sectors.
The conference is organized by the Egyptian ministry of Immigration and Expatriate affairs in cooperation with the NCW. The experts are specialized in the most important expatriates-related scientific, intellectual and academic fields.

Ambassador Nabila Makram, Egyptian Minister of Immigration, pointed out that the number of participants in the conference could increase. She stressed that the idea of this conference is inspired by El-Sisi’s announcement that 2017 is the year of Egyptian women, and driven by the national initiative to enable Egyptian women.
Makram expressed her confidence that the conference would create communications between female expert expatriates and their counterparts in Egypt to have female cadres that can contribute to achieve sustainable development goals of “Egypt Vision 2030.” The minister hopes the female experts can use their experience to provide applicable solutions for Egypt’s problems and pressing matters.
