CAIRO - 1 March 2019: Minister of Housing Assem El Gazzar has discussed with Swedish Ambassador in Cairo Jan Thesleff and Volvo company's officials means to boost cooperation between the two sides in the sustainable and smart transportation fields, as part of cooperation between the Egyptian and Swedish governments.

A statement issued by the Ministry on Friday said the meeting tackled the most important features of an integrated working plan for sustainable and smart transportation in the new cities, which will start in the first stage in October and Sheikh Zayed cities as of April.

An agreement was reached on providing grants to organize a transportation unit in the new cities east of Cairo.
