This aims to increase self-sufficiency rates and provide more job opportunities, as part of efforts to achieve food security for the citizens and push forward the comprehensive development process across various spheres in the country.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Embassy, in coordination with Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, is hosting a cultural property workshop to share best practices on combatting illicit trafficking of Egyptian antiquities and cultural objects from May 15 to 19.
This year’s workshop will feature cultural heritage, judicial, regulatory, and law enforcement experts responsible for investigating, monitoring, prosecuting, and enforcing cultural property crimes and laws. During the workshop, attendees will exchange information with Egyptian and American counterparts, examine case studies, and visit some of Egypt’s famed cultural sites.
Commenting on the importance of the workshop to the preservation of Egypt’s cultural heritage, U.S. Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Nicole Shampaine said, “Advancing U.S.-Egyptian cooperation to counter the illegal trafficking and trade of Egypt’s cultural artefacts remains a priority of the United States. This workshop strengthens our shared efforts to secure and protect Egypt’s renowned archaeological sites and cultural objects.”
The protection, conservation, and repatriation of Egypt’s cultural heritage is just one of the many ways the United States partners with the people and government of Egypt.
