CAIRO - 9 may 2018: Transport Minister Hisham Arafat said that the cabinet approved during its Wednesday meeting eight-million-euro loan from Austria with grace period of 66 months to develop the railways.

During a press conference on Wednesday following the cabinet's meeting under Prime Minister Sherif Ismail, Arafat underlined that maintaining the rail rods will take 36 months.
