CAIRO - 10 August 2018: Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli issued a decision Thursday to establish a media center affiliated with the Cabinet to achieve effective communication between the government and different media outlets.
The to-be-launched center “will be responsible for clarifying facts for the public, disproving rumors on different issues, and presenting the government’s activities and achievements to solve people’s problems via a simple media message.”
The center will consist of four main units: a unit to communicate with media, visual and audio production unit, electronic and social media unit and a unit monitoring and analyzing what is published on different media outlets.
According to the prime minister’s decision, Naayema Zaghloul will chair the new media center. The center will be located in the headquarters of the Information and Decision Support Center, which is also affiliated with the Cabinet.
Madbouly assured that the government is keen to effectively communicate with media outlets, which goes in line with President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi’s directives to clarify the facts for citizens.
