  • Of the 20,000 research scientists and engineers
    in the Arab region, More than half (56) are
    found in Egypt.
  • Some 66 of Arab researchers work in the public
    sector (government), 31 in the university sector
    and Only 3 in the private sector.
  • Nearly 44 of all Arab researchers work in water
    and agriculture (Unesco, 1998)

Egypt leads the Arab countries within the United
Nations Economic Social Commission for
Western Asia (ESCWA) in terms of the No. of RD
