Will subsidized fuels be secured for schools before late September?

The Caretaker Minister of Education and Higher Education Tarek Majzoub, confirmed in a television interview that “there are amendments that will be added to the health protocol for Covid-19 in schools, in terms of physical distancing, PCR tests, and others.”

Majzoub said that “returning to schools depends on the current situation of fuel,” explaining that there was an agreement with the Minister of Energy and Water to secure subsidized fuel for schools before late September, and discussions are held with donor countries to secure fuel for schools.

On the other hand, Majzoub indicated that they have reached a semi-final agreement with the Ministry of Economy for the national books and its final prices. Unfortunately, the price of imported books will be set at the dollar exchange rate of the market.
