CAIRO 25 September 2020: Canadian ambassador to Egypt Jess Dutton ended his mission with a message about his love for Egypt and its people.
On his official Twitter account, the ambassador posted a group of photos for him while he was tasting the Egyptian culture in Cairo and Luxor. He tweeted in Arabic, English, and French.
“As my family & I leave Cairo, I remember the first time I visited Egypt as a 24-year-old backpacker many years ago. I was struck by the incredible history & scenery, but what I remember the most was the warm & friendly welcome of the Egyptian people,” he tweeted.
Recently, Jess Dutton and Ambassador of Sweden and EU Gender Champion Thesleff honored ten inspirational Egyptian women change-makers.
“I have had the pleasure to witness Egypt’s strong will and determination to empower women and girls over the last three years. Today, we recognize and celebrate both the journeys and visions of some of the committed women who have tirelessly worked to realize this will and determination, and in their own unique ways have made their communities and Egypt more gender-equitable, more peaceful, and more prosperous,” he said.
“Public-private partnerships are pivotal for sustaining change, and we are proud of the Canadian-funded projects and our partners in Egypt who are leading the way in improving the skills and training of women, securing a better quality of life and fostering the future of a prosperous Egypt,” Dutton added.
