The Egyptian Committee for the World Festival of Youth concluded its work in selecting the Egyptian delegation to participate in the festival, which will be held from March 1 to 7, 2024, in Sochi, with the participation of 20,000 young men and women aged 18 to 35 from 187 countries. The festival is expected to be inaugurated by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Ahmed Barany, the head of the Egyptian Committee for the World Festival of Youth, stated that the number of registrants for participation from Egypt reached 4,600, reflecting the festival’s significance and the Egyptian youth’s interest in participating, making Egypt the second-highest country in terms of registered participants.

Dr. Abdullah Al-Batsh, Assistant Minister of Youth and Sports and the committee’s rapporteur, emphasized that the selection was based on specific criteria to choose the best candidates capable of representing Egypt. The Ministry of Youth and Sports will conduct training courses for the participants before their departure.

Dr. Nagy El-Shahaby, head of the Generation Party and a committee member, mentioned that he had participated in the festival before, but the 2024 edition differs significantly in form and content from previous ones.

Sherif Gad, the committee’s Secretary-General and official spokesperson, said that the Egyptian delegation would ensure presenting a cultural program through various activities and organizing an exhibition for the Egyptian pavilion, which will include souvenirs from the Tourism Promotion Authority and the General Authority for Information. The delegation will include 129 participants.

On the other side, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Dr. Ashraf Sobhy, welcomed the members of the Egyptian committee, attended by Major General Ismail El-Far and the head of the Youth Sector at the ministry, congratulating them on their substantial effort in selecting the participants. The minister affirmed the state’s keenness to support the youth and provide them with opportunities to represent Egypt honorably at international forums.
