Housing Minister Assem el Gazzar met Friday with Omani Ambassador in Cairo Abdullah bin Nasser Al-Rahbi, and undersecretary of Oman’s Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning Hamad bin Ali Al-Nazwani, where he expounded Egypt’s urban development experiment under the guidance of President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
Egypt has witnessed unprecedented urban development activities in various fields, as part of the country’s national strategic plan for urban development “Egypt 2052” which aims at increasing Egypt’s inhabited lands to 14-7% to support economic and social development and to cater to the needs of a growing population, el Gazzar said.
For his side, Al-Rahbi praised Egypt’s ambitious urban development plan, saying that the present-day Egyptians, like their ancestors of pyramid builders, are rushing to build the new Egypt.
Al-Nazwani, also, hailed the Egyptian plans, especially those concerning the development of the unsafe slums and the construction of social housing projects.
