CAIRO – 1 December 2022: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said Thursday that Haya Karima [decent life] ‘s initiative plan was not finished until now in several villages’ allover the country due to the economic repercussions of the Russian- Ukrainian war.

“We were surprised that companies, -despite of efforts that is being carried out-, was not able to finish these projects in a year.” Sisi said during his tour to New Mansoura University.

President Sisi added that the government was planning to implement ‘decent life’ projects within 3 years, with a total coat of LE 700 billion, but now the cost exceeds LE 1 trillion.

  During the the inauguration ceremony of New Mansoura City, Thursday, President Sisi warned that  “overpopulation will eat away at the country,”

President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi inaugurated Thursday New Mansoura City situated in the middle of three governorates that are Daqahliyah, Damietta, and Kafr El Sheikh.

New Mansoura is a smart fourth-generation city that consists of a corniche stretching on 15 kilometers of the Mediterranean coast, central parks, and entertainment venues.

Minister of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities Assem El Gazar pointed out that the city has beaches for all levels of income and that 25 percent of its surface area is landscape.

New Mansoura is also home to New Mansoura University, new headquarters of Daqahliyah Security Directorate, a complex offering civil services, and a digital control center to manage utilities in the city.

President Sisi noted that the decree sanctioning the construction of New Mansoura City was issued in 2010, and that now, finally the plan became a reality. That is the outcome of investing LE3.5 billion in the city's infrastructure alone.

President Sisi noted that the government is implementing a plan to build 30 new cities, stressing that they are not a luxury. Rather, they are a necessity to cope with increasing urbanization generated by a staggering population growth, and to combat building houses in agricultural lands.
