    At the outset of the meeting, which was held on Saturday, 11 March 2023, at the Ministry’s headquarters in Cairo, Dr. AlMalik expressed his gratitude to Dr. Ashour for his participation in the first consultative meeting on “Strategic Indicators for Development in the Islamic World: The Global Knowledge Index as a Model” held at ICESCO headquarters last December, thanking Egypt for constantly supporting the Organization’s activities.

    For his part, Dr. Ashour commended ICESCO’s achievements in the last three years in the fields of education, science and culture, which encouraged Member States to support the Organization’s initiatives, programs and projects.

    During the meeting, the two parties discussed the ongoing joint programs and those to be implemented during the next phase of the partnership between ICESCO and Egypt, namely the international professional teaching certificates project which should benefit 2000 teachers.
