Nine years have passed since the glorious June 30 revolution, but its events will remain engraved in the memory of Egyptians and its results will shape the features of Egypt’s future.
The June 30 Revolution was not just an uprising to overthrow a regime that was rejected by the masses of the people, but rather a revolution to recover the identity of a nation, correct its course, and build a new modern state.
It is a revolution that embodied the greatness of Egypt, its history and civilization, and united all the spectra of its people and institutions, to get Egypt out of the dark tunnel in which it was walking.
This popular revolution was a turning point and a dividing line between two eras. It was a dividing line between a year of political failure, mismanagement, false promises, a deteriorating economy, loss of confidence and credibility in the state, political and security instability and absence of vision, and between a state, according to the testimony of all international institutions, that is on the right path, representing a success story and a role model that has a clear vision for the future that aims to become one of the largest 30 economies in the world.
This June 30 Revolution also divided between a year of political failure and a state aims to double the area of the globe from 7% to 14%. For the first time, we see so many giant projects in agriculture, roads, housing, electricity, and the development of the Suez Canal Zone.
A salute of pride and veneration to President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, the symbol of the June 30 Revolution, who answered the people’s call and sided with their free will. He saved the country from civil war and religious fascism, which builds, reconstructs, develops and changes reality to build the new Egypt of which we are all proud.
During the past 10 years, Egypt has faced the most difficult challenges: the 2011 and 2013 revolutions, the Coronavirus pandemic, and the Ukrainian-Russian war, but thanks to the efforts of President Sisi, his proactive policies and his bold reforms, the Egyptian economy was able to withstand and even achieve high growth.
Egypt was one of the highest developing countries and one of the few countries in the world that witnessed positive growth throughout the Coronavirus crisis.
The magnitude of the challenges that Egypt is currently facing is unprecedented. It is facing terrorism at home and the challenge of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) and the global economic crisis abroad.
Thanks to the successes of the June 30 Revolution, which restored the spirit and strength to the Egyptian state, Egypt is able to overcome these challenges and complete its path to achieve Egypt Vision 2030 of growth, development and a decent life.
