Living in Egypt

Egypt is located in the north-eastern corner of Africa. It is the 29th largest country in the World by area and has a population of 95,000,000. It’s capital, Cairo, is in the north-east of the country, situated just west of the Suez Canal – a key shipping passage connecting Europe and Asia. It is bordered by Israel in the north-east, Sudan in the south, and Libya in the west, whilst also having coastlines adjacent to the Mediterranean and Red Seas. The country is perhaps best known for its history; a history that is amongst the oldest of any country in the World and is symbolised by the Pyramids and Great Sphinx of Ancient Egypt, alongside countless other relics. Throughout its history, the country has been subject to various political and military conflicts, and this is perpetuated today by its current leadership; a military dictatorship which does not allow free elections and appears relatively unconcerned with human rights breaches. Egypt’s economy is centred upon petrol and other energy sources, but tourism is also a key contributor. Around 2,700,000 Egyptians currently work abroad. The nation is primarily Arabic speaking and Islamic in faith, though there are minorities of Christians. Egypt’s rich history has helped establish the nation as somewhat of a cultural leader within the Arabic world.
