Legislation to tackle presidential priorities nears introduction

The Egyptian government is currently developing legislation to address President Hosni Mubarak's primary priorities for the upcoming parliamentary session.

Reforms in health care, public sector employment, provisions for the physically challenged, internal trade, and market control are all on the table.

Government officials are also drawing up legislation to encourage a foreign investment jump to US$ ten million, job opportunity expansion and an export rise to reach LE200 billion by 2013. The reforms seek to develop the Egyptian market by establishing free trade zones and tinkering with state land regulations.

The legislative vision also intends to tackle population control as well as mass services such as drinking water, waste water, education and transportation.
