CAIRO - 18 July 2019: Planning Minister Hala el Saeid said Thursday the government is working to fight all forms of inequality, particularly in terms of economic development in rural and urban areas.

Saeid was addressing a conference organized by Egypt and the UN Development Program and World Food Program on the role of development companies to achieve equality in development.

She said that the immigration crisis and crimes in some areas are mainly blamed on the unequal levels of economic development, plus the security situation.

The minister reviewed government programs to rationalize subsidy with the aim to address most-in-need brackets.

An integrated strategy has also been outlined to include the informal sector in the formal economy, she added.

Saeid stressed the need to exert utmost efforts to reach peaceful solutions to conflicts around the world.
