The Cabinet's media centre will consist of four main units: The media communication unit، the audio-visual production unit، the electronic media and social communication unit، and the monitoring and analysis unit for analysing every piece of news published in the various media.
The Prime Minister's decree stated that Dr Naiem Saad Zaghloul will chair the centre. Hani Younus، the media adviser to the Prime Minister، will oversee the media centre's activities.
