CAIRO – 18 April 2023: The Ministry of Civil Aviation, Hassan Allam Holding, and A.P. Moller Capital signed Tuesday an agreement to establish the Integrated Logistics Platform which would comprise facilities, distribution centers, logistics services, storage complexes, and dry warehouses.


The platform is targeted to attract investments worth $200 million in the sectors of logistics, shipping, and warehousing.


In January, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi directed Wednesday pushing forward the development of the civil aviation sector, maximizing the investment of relevant Egyptian assets embodied in the central location and international airports distributed nationwide.


The president directives took place during a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli, Chief of the General Intelligence Directorate Abbas Kamel, and Minister of Civil Aviation Mohamed Abbas Helmy.


The minister presented the executive status of a number of projects, including the modernization of the fleet, governance of companies, training of pilots and crew members.


The minister had stated in November that that the ministry seeks, through an ambitious plan, to achieve the Egyptian state's orientation towards sustainable development and transform Egyptian airports into "environmentally friendly" by focusing on two axes.


The first axis is the transition to using new and renewable energy, rationalizing the use of electricity and relying on solar energy, while the second axis is to reduce emissions from aircraft and the tendency to use biofuels to reach the lowest amount of carbon emissions.


The plan is to implement the two axes while adhering to all instructions and recommendations issued by the international civil aviation organizations in accordance with the objectives of the National Strategy for Climate Change 2050, through which the Egyptian state aims to reduce climate repercussions and confront negative effects to climate changes.
