CAIRO – 24 March 2022: In his speech at the Policy Academy on Thursday, President Abdel Fattah El Sisi reassured the Egyptians that the country has no problem with the availability of the basic commodities for the upcoming months, amid the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian military escalation.
“Egypt has no problem with the basic commodities and people’s basic needs for the upcoming several months.
President Sisi said that although the whole world, including Egypt, is going through a global crisis when it comes to energy, supply chains, prices, and market stability, he assured that the situation in Egypt is good for months to come.
“We hope this crisis ends soon. It arose immediately after the coronavirus crisis which has existed for more than 2 years. These crises represent a major burden on any economy in the world, not only on the emerging economies,” he said. He also wished Egyptians a blessed holy month of Ramadan.
President Sisi held a visit early on Thursday to the Police Academy, where he was received by Minister of Interior Mahmoud Tawfik and senior officials of the establishment.

The talk also tackled internal affairs, and the state institutions' efforts embodied in a series of mega-national projects.
