John Casson: Nothing powers the Egyptian economy like British support
British Ambassador John Casson said: “Nothing powers the Egyptian economy like British support for the oil and gas sector.
This year alone over $7bn of UK investment is bringing hard currency for Egyptian banks, new jobs for Egyptians, new energy supplies for Egypt.
But we want more. So today we launch new UK scholarships to give Egypt’s oil and gas workers the world class skills and qualifications to make Egypt the energy superpower of the Eastern Mediterranean.
When you combine world class British qualifications with Egypt’s smart and ambitious young workforce, it is an unstoppable combination"
The Oil & Gas International Scholarship Programme, which is the largest scholarship program in its sector in Egypt, was launched today at the British Embassy. The launch was attended by representatives of more than 80 of the top Oil and Gas companies in Egypt, including British Petroleum, Exxon Mobil, Petrojet, EGAS, GASCO, Shell, and ECHEM.
The programme was designed by the International Academy for Advanced Research and Studies, London (IARS), and Pearson, the largest awarding body in UK, in partnership with Oil and Gas Skills Egypt (OGS). It aims to support the work of the Egyptian Government as it modernises the Oil and Gas Sector. The scholarship programme will provide accessible and affordable high quality international training programs with International British Qualifications, which are recognised in more than 120 countries. The training programs will develop the knowledge and skills of up to 2000 participants, to meet the changing needs of businesses in the Oil and Gas sector.
Karim El Safty, Regional Manager of International Academy for Advanced Research and Studies, London, said, “It’s an honour to announce the largest scholarship programme within the Oil and Gas sector in Egypt, with a special focus on developing leaders. I’m very proud of the consortium between OGS & IARS/ Pearson; I believe the partnership will significantly enhance the quality of professional development throughout the Oil and Gas sector in Egypt.”
