Egypt’s Prime Minister to inaugurate WCRC-7

Egypt’s Prime Minister Mostafa Kemal Madbouly will inaugurate the seventh World Cotton Research Conference (WCRC) in Sharm-el-Sheikh in the presence of some of Egypt’s most prominent politicians and academicians. Egypt Air offers flight discounts.
  • Will have many VIPs in attendance, including Mostafa Kemal Madbouly, Egypt’s Prime Minister
  • Announced its first major sponsorship: discounted flights on Egypt Air
  • Is held every four years — this is the seventh event since it launched in 1994
  • Is coordinated by the ICAC under the auspices of the International Cotton Researchers Association
  • Provides a showcase for scientists and researchers to display their work for the public and private sectors

In addition to the Honourable Prime Minister, Egypt’s Minister of Trade and Industry, Tareq Qabil, and Minister of Public Business Sector, Hisham Tawfik, will be at the event, which will be held from 3-7 October 2020 and is expected to draw more than 400 people. 

That is not all of the good news for attendees, however: They will also have the opportunity to fly to and from Sharm el-Sheikh on Egypt Air, the event’s first major sponsor, at a 20% discount. The offer applies to all classes of travel; please contact Dr Mohamed Negm (prof.negmmohamed@yahoo.com) for more information.

‘The fact that multiple high-level government officials already have announced that they will be in attendance highlights just how important cotton is to Egypt’s economy and culture’, said Dr Mohamed Negm, Head of the National Organising Committee. ‘That is further confirmed by the outstanding support the WCRC is getting from the country’s national airline, Egypt Air. It’s clear that this is a must-attend event for cotton professionals, especially with the discounted airfares reducing travel costs’.
