Egypt's ambassador to the United States spoke at MIT on Oct. 18 in an event sponsored by the MIT Arab Students' Organization.

Nabil Fahmy, a career diplomat who has been Egypt's ambassador to the United States since October 1999, spoke on "Winds of Change in the Middle East: An Egyptian Perspective" to about 100 students gathered in Room E51-315.

Fahmy commented on the implications that Egypt's recent presidential elections and upcoming parliamentary elections have for sustained political and economic reform in Egypt.

He also attended a reception hosted by mechanical engineering Professor Ahmed F. Ghoniem.
