CAIRO – 13 June 2018: Minister of Immigration and Egyptian Expatriate Affairs, Nabila Makram, congratulated Mohamed al-Sayed Badr, an Egyptian youth, for taking post as the dean of a Munich’s mass communication faculty.
Badr, 39, is considered the youngest expatriate in Germany to take that post. Makram congratulated Badr after he has won the competition against 17 German professors, the German Embassy in Cairo reported.
She expressed her pride of the Egyptian expats’ efficiency in various fields, saying that Egyptian expats can take high level posts despite their young age due to their efficiency.
Badr, from the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, has been named 2017’s best university professor in Germany, following a serious competition with 72 German professors, according to media reports.
Badr has also created joint media programs between the University of Westminster in London and Macromedia University in Munich. In addition, scientific and cultural cooperation between the two universities in the media field has been reportedly endorsed thanks to his efforts.
In late January, Nasser Fouad, chairman and CEO of St George Healthcare Group in Warrington, was assigned as the deputy lord lieutenant of Cheshire, a county in North West England, as the first Egyptian to take this post.

Fouad stated that he has been living in Cheshire since 1996, where he also began his practice as a psychiatrist. In 1999, he founded the first medical services company, St George, which has developed into St George Healthcare Group, Warrington.
“In 2003, we established St. Mark Hospital Foundation, a charitable foundation, whose main objective is to provide any medical assistance and/or medical devices,” Fouad said. He added that this foundation does not only care for Egyptians but also provides assistance to the handicapped in the United Kingdom and Africa, in addition to the Syrian refugee camps in Jordan, Greece and the Middle East.
