President of the Academy of Scientific Research & Technology (ASRT) Mahmoud Sakr was selected on Wednesday3/3/2021 as deputy chairman of the Center for Science and Technology of the Non-aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Center).
During the Center's 15th session that was held virtually, Sakr was chosen as one of the Center's three deputies in recognition of Egypt's contribution to the field of academic achievement, as well as its fruitful input in the science and technology domains since the establishment of the center.
The election of an Egypt figure to the post also comes to crown all Egyptian efforts in organizing and holding workshops promoting Egyptian researchers' active interaction and exchange of expertise with scholars abroad.
Egypt is one of the founding members of the NAM and views the movement as the broadest and the most important framework for developing countries to coordinate their stances on issues on the agenda of the United Nations and to act together against unilateral policies.
