CAIRO – 7 November 2017: The global Algerian singer Cheb Khaled, along with the Kuwaiti director Yacoub Al-Mohana, arrived in Sharm El-Sheikh on Tuesday to participate in the World Youth Forum (WYF).
“I am extremely happy to participate in such a huge and important international youth forum,” recounted Khaled.
“Egypt will always remain a safe and secure country and the cradle of all civilizations,” Mohana added.
The prominent Algerian singer sang “Shabab el Alam” (World’s Youth) which was dedicated to the WYF. The song is written by Khaled Tageldin, composed by Amr Moustafa and distributed by Amin Nabil.
The WYF kicked off on Sunday in the tourist city of Sharm El-Sheikh in South Sinai under the auspices of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi. The forum will run until November 10; representing Egypt’s first experience at organizing such an international youth event.
The WYF was first announced during the National Youth Conference in Alexandria in July, which was also attended by Sisi. According to the WYF’s official website, the forum is “built by promising youth that sends a message of peace, prosperity, harmony and progress to the entire world.” The WYF attracted more than 3,000 participants representing 113 states, with 52 official international delegations as well as youth representatives from various countries.
The forum includes various pillars aiming to tackle subjects of interest to both national and international youth, including youth global issues, sustainable development, technology and entrepreneurship, civilization and culture, and preparing future leaders.
