Nazif's speech made clear, however, that fighting unemployment, stimulating direct investments, generating more income for the poor, improving social services, and upgrading the country's economic institutions will all be pursued ahead of political reforms and democratisation.
Nazif is optimistic about the growth rate climbing to six per cent by the end of this year, which will certainly help absorb some new job seekers.
Nazif bluntly indicated that implementing Mubarak's programme would require a flurry of massive privatisations in all sectors, which was in line with the shift in the government's role to "guardian and regulator of economic activities, with implementation of projects and development plans left to the private sector".

NAZIF:  Sometimes it does because, you know, you have to understand the Egyptian environment itself; not just the Egyptian environment, probably many countries in a similar case, who were subject to colonialists for a long time.  They don't appreciate very much foreign bodies telling them what to do.
NAZIF:  I don't think that's true as well, and there are many, many cases where this is not true.  We see demonstrations in the street for President Mubarak, for example, spontaneous demonstrations as well.  Nobody mentions that.  How come?  How come the media in other places of the world do not mention that.
NAZIF:  Well, we've declared opposition on this very clearly.  We will not pursue nuclear capability in terms of military use.  And I think that we are one of the most--advocates today of NPT, and I believe that the Egyptian position is very clear on this.
