Egypt has ended the traditional monopoly of foreign experts on archaeological excavations in the country and has managed to promote their own archaeologists, working in twenty missions today. Zahi Hawass, the president of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (CSA), added that until recently "were the only foreigners involved in the excavation of the remains Islamic, Coptic and Pharaonic. Now we have 17 missions (archaeological), plus three others who work with me," Hawas was speaking to reporters after inaugurating a symposium on the work in the field of Egyptian experts. At the headquarters of the Supreme Council of Antiquities archaeologists, researchers and students gathered for two days to discuss the work being carried out on archaeological sites, and to thank and reward the expertise and professionalism of those workers who are retiring. Hawas said that another function of the CSA is "to send abroad to students and recent graduates to learn with the best experts in the antiques world to know and work in the excavations of Egypt."
