CAIRO – 14 November 2017: President Abdel-Fatah al-Sisi met with Prime Minister Sherif Ismail and Matrouh Governor Alaa Abu-Zeid on Tuesday, according to presidential spokesperson Bassam Rady.

The meeting was a follow-up to the government's plan of developing the western region of Egypt, which aims to create an attractive area for foreign investments thus turning them into tourist destinations throughout the year. This will contribute to the revitalization of the national economy and job creation by establishing a number of development projects, service and tourism at the Marsa Matrouh governorate.

Rady stated that the Governor of Matrouh presented a number of projects, including the construction of a wastewater treatment plant for the production of clean water and an international entertaining city, as well as the establishment of maritime and commercial ports.

Abu-Zeid explained that setting up a number of international hotels is in the plan, as well as a number of industrial projects based on the region’s produce, which include olive oil, figs, dates and textiles. This is expected to provide thousands of job opportunities throughout the year for citizens as opposed to seasonal employment.

“It is essential to implement these projects as soon as possible at the lowest cost but with the highest quality standards. The projects come under the permanent guidance of President Sisi to properly manage the assets of the state and ensure benefitting from them in the best economic way for the welfare of the Egyptian people,” noted Rady.
