CAIRO – 11 October 2017: Egypt is looking forward to having dozens of cities like the New Administrative Capital, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi said during his speech at the inauguration ceremony of the new city’s first phase.

“It is too early to say we achieved something… this is only the first step,” Sisi said; noting that the New Administrative Capital will be registered in history as a major achievement and a turning point in Egypt’s development.

The inauguration ceremony of the New Administrative Capital launched Wednesday and was attended by Prime Minister Sherif Ismail and a number of ministers.

Head of the Armed Forces’ Engineering Authority Kamil El-Wazir said that the authority started working on the project in July 2016.

“We were assigned to work on the government district, which will spread over 1,133 feddans and will include buildings of ministries and the parliament,” Wazir said; adding that they are working on the residential district, the New Capital Airport, universities and a network of roads and tunnels.

The ceremony is held at Al Masah Capital Hotel, which was inaugurated Friday to be one of the largest hotels in the world. Al Masah Resort is more than 10 acres big, containing a conference area, lakes, mosque, and trade mall with unique architectural designs.
