In the spring of 2011, a wave of pro-democracy protests and uprisings that took place in the Middle East and North Africa. The People of Egypt also took to the streets demanding the overthrow of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak who ruled the country for 30 years under poverty, unemployment, corruption, and autocratic governance. 7 years have passed since then. How has Egyptian society changed over the years?
On "The Diplomat" this week, we sit down with Egyptian ambassador to Korea Hazem Fahmy to talk about the changes in Egypt, the public's expectations for the el-Sisi administration, and the country's view of the peace process on the Korean peninsula. Ambassador Fahmy also shares his vision for the economic cooperation between the two countries and the benefits of investing in Egypt for mutual prosperity.
