The online news organisation Mint Press News has carried an exclusive interview with Shafik Gabr about his East West initiative.
The website says that Mr Gabr is bringing a philanthropic mission to the United States in an effort to build bridges between East and West.
In the interview, he says, “One of the most important things I have paid attention to as an individual and as a businessman is the need to create links between Egypt and the U.S. I always believed the U.S. would benefit from closer relations with Egypt and vice versa.”
“I had a number of initiatives I have done over the years in that domain. But now with so many things happening in my part of the world, my sense is I should take that further, so I’m establishing a foundation in the United States, and the focus of that foundation is going to be to create an East-West dialogue."
