Egypt's new cabinet, led by Prime Minister Essam Sharaf, met on Wednesday for the first time putting efforts to return security to Egypt's streets; reviving the country's economy was at the top of the agenda.
 
Sharaf, who came to office after a purge of officials linked to the ousted Mubarak, said on Monday he would work to get Egypt's economy back on its feet after weeks of protests and political turmoil.
 
The meeting is expected to discuss a number of issues the government is planning to accomplish as soon as possible.
 
The lack of security on streets is a major priority on Sharaf's cabinet list in light of the deteriorating security, and increased bullying and theft following the fall of the police agency in the wake of the January 25 revolution.
 
Other issues on the agenda include attempts to revive the country's economy, operating the stock exchange, boosting production and development, resuming workers their duties in factories especially as the protests and demands have negatively affected the import-export process.
 
Sharaf's cabinet will pay more attention to water-sharing arrangements for the River Nile and changes taking place, especially since some African countries took advantage of Egypt's turmoil and signed the Nile basin accord in violation of the treaty, which inevitably will negatively affect the future of Egypt's water.
 
According to sources close to the new Ministers, Sharaf will not accept any compromise concerning this sensitive issue, and intends to deal with the Nile-basin agenda. He asserted that the government gives priority to diplomatic negotiations as a reliable solution in dealing with the Nile Basin states, stressing that Egypt will not accept any threats to its national security.
 
The cabinet is to discuss how to restore investment and tourism to Egypt, as well as the resumption of universities and schools, many of which remained closed since Mubarak was toppled from power.
