Egypt has sworn in 10 new ministers in an anticipated cabinet reshuffle prompted by president Abdul Fattah al-Sisi.
The most notable changes were applied to the ministries of finance, tourism, transport and investment.
Yehia Rashed was appointed as tourism minister and Dalia Khorshid as investment minister. Former Cairo governor Galal Said was also appointed as transportation minister, while the new finance minister will be Amr el-Garhy.
The Public Sector Affairs Ministry was also established as part of the reshuffle.
The cabinet reshuffle notably excluded Health Minister Ahmed Emad el-Din, who has come under heavy criticism in past weeks due to conflicts with the Doctors Syndicate.
This is the second cabinet reshuffle in less than a year.
Egypts main ministries have come under pressure in recent months as the countrys economic recovery slows amid declining revenues from tourism and the Suez Canal.
Egypt has struggled to apply the necessary reforms to attract the level of investment it needs to press ahead with major schemes.
The Arab worlds most populous nation has not been helped by security concerns following the downing of the Russian passenger jet in October last year, as well as declining oil revenues that have slowed GCC investments.
