The strategy represents the State's plan and Egypt's general objectives for 2030 and is characterized by three clear elements for the sustainable development of the Egyptian individual. Culture falls under the Social/Environmental dimension.
The strategy adopted the concept of sustainable development as a general framework intended to improve the quality of life at present without prejudice to future generations' right to a better life. Hence, the concept of development as adopted by the strategy is grounded in three main dimensions that include the political dimension, the social dimension and the environmental dimension.
The Ministry of Culture has translated Egypt's 2030 cultural vision into 6 pillars or programs of action as follows:
* Supporting cultural industries as a source of economic power
* Empowering cultural industries to become a source of power for achieving development and an added value to the Egyptian economy, making it a basis for Egypt's soft power regionally and internationally
* Increasing the efficiency of cultural institutions and personnel working in the cultural system
* Increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of cultural institutions, maximizing their role and influence, and widening their reach to the various segments of society, and similarly enhancing the capacities of the personnel working in the cultural system as befits our reality and the circumstances of the current stage
* Protecting and promoting all kinds of cultural heritage
* Ensuring the protection and maintenance of cultural heritage and increasing awareness of it within Egypt and abroad
