CAIRO – 23 March 2023: Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi discussed the government’s plan to relocate ministries and various State agencies and institutions to the New Administrative Capital in a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and the Cabinet members at the Strategic Leadership Center in the new capital on Thursday.
During the meeting, Sisi ordered intensifying efforts to ensure that the government’s transition to the New Administrative Capital represents a real development for the state’s administrative apparatus in a comprehensive and qualitative manner, the Egyptian Presidency said in a statement.
This would be achieved not only through the modernization of buildings and premises, but also through the qualification of workers and the provision of training programs to government personnel to teach them modern scientific methods of administration, Sisi affirmed.
These efforts would contribute to the establishment of an efficient and effective administrative body and to the shift toward a smart government and the beginning of a new era of providing outstanding digitized services to the citizens.
Sisi affirmed that marching toward the “New Republic” requires the efforts, action and sacrifice of all loyal Egyptians to formulate a better present and future for the country.
In mid-March, the Ministry of Social Solidarity was transferred to its new premises in the new capital, Minister of Social Solidarity Nivine El-Qabbaj said.
Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has issued directives for the ministries to relocate their headquarters to the new capital over the past years. However, the move was delayed for years due to the coronavirus pandemic and the global repercussions.
The New Administrative Capital, under construction since 2015, is located east of Cairo and is set to house millions of people when completed.
In more than one occasion, Sisi affirmed that the new capital will embody the values of modern Egypt and is set to receive more than 50,000 public employees working in the ministries and other state bodies.
The president also reviewed the developments of the implementation of the first phase of "Haya Karima" (Decent Life) initiative which aims to develop the Egyptian countryside. He was briefed as well on measures taken to commence the second phase of the initiative.
In this regard, Sisi ordered continuing cooperation and coordination between the concerned state agencies with a periodical field follow-up.
Haya Karima initiative is the largest of its kind in the history of Egypt in terms of scope and impact, the meeting noted.
The initiative would contribute to achieving a qualitative breakthrough and improving the livelihood of the people in the Egyptian countryside, who represent about 60% of the population, at all levels, the Presidency added.
