The Impact of Globalization in Egypt

With globalization occurring Egypt is becoming one of the leading financial centers in the Middle East North Africa Region.

In Egypt globalization has played a role in economic restructure and reinterpretation of traditional values. The country has transformed itself economically from a administred economy to a free market economy, through the intervention of IMF and World Bank.
Many other issues such as climate change, HIV/AIDS, energy and economic development are being addressed with great success. Egyptian press has become a big part of these success.

With the success they're also many challenges ahead. It starts with religion and secular division along with upper aged people division with the youth. With the internet present it is changing how young Egyptians express themselves by merging Egyptian Arabic with English.

  1. Very good post. What do you mean when you say that the media has been a part of Egyptian society's success in dealing with some of those issues? Do you have any good examples?

    Also, since Egypt is ruled by an authoritarian dictatorship, do you think that influences the way the media report political news?
