Egypt Safety Statement
It is a pleasure that you’ll be joining us in the National Cancer Institute’s annual conference in Cairo on November 30th and December 1st, 2023.
Your travel safety to Egypt is our first priority, we are working hard on having an outstanding scientific event, however, we understand that the current regional political events are of great concern to you; in this regard we’d like to explain the current situation.
Concerning the current events in Gaza, we assure you that traveling to Egypt is completely safe, and there are no safety risks by any means, flights are going smoothly, and the authorities in Egypt have a significant security presence across the country.
Gaza is located 630 km away north east of Egypt, and the Egyptian borders are quietly protected. Egypt’s first concern now is to end this conflict as soon as possible.
Over the decades, the Egyptian government has helped to end most of the conflicts in Palestine, often through actions with primary responsibility, for the maintenance of international peace and security.
The Egyptian president has launched the “Cairo Summit for Peace” on Saturday October 21st, with the participation of more than 31 countries from a dozen of Arab and Western nations, along with high-level representatives from the European Union to stop the escalation and pursue a ceasefire in Gaza Strip.
It is our pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you to share knowledge and scientific discussions in the historic city of Cairo that remains to be an avenue witness for the great Egyptian civilization, it will add to the pleasure of the meeting and provide lasting memories beyond the science.
Looking forward to meeting you in November!
Respectfully yours,
