As part of Action Diplomacy’s project, “EU Cultural Programme in Egypt”, our team organised a press conference with the EU and several Egyptian ministries to highlight a unique collaboration to transform the Egyptian Museum in downtown Cairo last week. Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Dr Khaled El-Enany, Minister of Investment and International Cooperation Dr Sahar Nasr, and the EU Ambassador to Egypt, Ivan Surkoš, presented the EU-funded project “Transforming the Egyptian Museum of Cairo”.
The project is backed by a 3.1 million Euro grant from the EU aiming at the creation of a strategic vision for the museum. Ambassador Surkoš underlined the importance of the project, which symbolises the excellent cooperation between the EU and Egypt in the common endeavour to protect and promote our common cultural heritage.
