Immigration Min: CSR is mainstay for sustainable development
Minister of Immigration and Egyptian Expatriates Nabila Makram stressed the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as one of the mainstays of sustainable development.
Makram said CSR is the linking point between the civil society and the ministry for implementing the Sustainable Development Goals and the Egypt Vision 2030.
CSR is based on partnership between the government, civil society and the private sector with an aim to realize tangible impact of development in poor people’s lives, she said, referring to cooperation between the Ministry of Immigration and the Ministry of Youth and Sports in this regard.
She made the remarks on Monday during the 10th annual Forum for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development – known as CSR Forum- which was held under the theme of “Responsible Investment Gate for Recovering and Overcoming Crises.”
She added that the ministry is cooperating with the private sector in organizing various camps in addition to supporting Egyptian workers via collaborating with the Manpower Ministry.
She commended the decision of restoring the Ministry of Immigration in 2015 as it helped in benefiting from Egyptian expertise abroad and backing the state in the face of various challenges.
She noted that the ministry’s strategy is based on partnership with many Egyptians abroad and keeping in touch with them.
She added that the ministry launched the “Life Saving Boats” initiative to confront illegal immigration.
She hailed the Egyptian people’s efforts in confronting the current challenges and their role in backing the political leadership in realizing Egypt Vision and sustainable development.
