I wonder what great potential do you mean. Egypt can hardly feed its masses in an overpopulated country, a big part of the people are still illiterate, women's rights are ignored, democracy is an illusion. Egypt will soon be surpassed by many countries that are poor and underdeveloped now, even African countries are already outperforming Egypt. I actually think Egypt's future looks rather bleak.
