CAIRO - 2 September 2022: Egypt’s Interior Ministry will host the 8th Arab Conference for officials in charge of human rights at Arab interior ministries from 5 to 8 September.

The conference comes within the framework of the National Strategy for Human Rights launched by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.

The Egyptian Interior Ministry's host of the event represents an appreciation of the general secretariat of the AIM Council for Egypt's Arab role, the ministry added.

Sisi launched the National Strategy for Human Rights in September as a roadmap for human rights conditions in the country.

The strategy reflects the Egyptian state’s political will to promote human rights, Egypt has asserted.

This strategy is the first of its kind in Egypt an aims at promoting national efforts to develop human rights and respect rights and freedoms of citizens, Egypt has affirmed.

The economic and social development plan for the fiscal year 2022/2023, which was approved by Egypt’s House of Representatives during its last plenary sessions revealed the allocation of LE 458 billion to implement the strategy during the year.

In addition, an amount of more than LE 12 billion has been allocated to support the human rights of women, children, persons with disabilities, youth and the elderly.
