Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly made an inspection tour to follow up on the work being carried out in the nascent city
Madbouly stressed the need to adhere to the timetables for the completion of projects, and expressed his readiness to visit work sites weekly to follow up with officials of the Ministry of Housing and the Engineering Authority of the Armed Forces, who are charged with supervising major projects.
In a meeting at the Council of Ministers headquarters in the new capital, the Prime Minister affirmed that "no delay in projects is allowed," and directed the implementation of coordination work for the site in the main axes and their completion as soon as possible in preparation for its opening.
During the visit, Madbouly announced the start of the countdown to the completion of the first phase of the new administrative capital, which Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi will inaugurate at a later time.
The area of the first phase of the capital is 40,000 acres, and is equivalent to half the area of Cairo Governorate.
Egypt considers that the new capital project is the beginning of announcing the birth of a "new republic", and that it will make a leap in government performance and attract more foreign investments, according to the words of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.
