CAIRO – 4 August 2020: Minister of Education and Technical Education Tarek Shwaki stated Tuesday that the curricula will be available in the electronic form in the coming period, and that no textbooks will be printed.


In December, Shawqy said Egypt was seeking to benefit from foreign expertise in developing Egyptian education.

In a phone call with Extra News channel, Shawqy referred to the partnership with USAID for honing skills of teachers.

He noted that there are partnerships with other international organizations, including UNICEF and UNESCO.

He added that there are 40 Egyptian-Japanese schools in Egypt, noting that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is keen on managing these schools in accordance with the Japanese mechanism.

He added that about 15 Japanese experts and teachers came to Egypt to teach at the Japanese schools.
