CAIRO – 3 February 2024: Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli emphasized the government's commitment to meticulous oversight of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) project, including the smallest details.

During an onsite inspection tour, Madbouli assessed the final touches being made to the GEM, situated near the Giza Pyramid Complex, in preparation for its imminent official opening.

Accompanied by the Minister of Tourism, the Governor of Giza, and senior officials from relevant entities, Madbouli also examined the progress of urban development activities surrounding the colossal museum.

Once completed, the GEM will house the world's largest collection of antiquities from a single culture.

The tour commenced with an assessment of the overall readiness of the project site. Furthermore, Madbouli visited the Khufu Ship Museum, which showcases two solar boats constructed for King Khufu.

Providing an update on the project's advancement, Major General Atef Moftah, the General Supervisor of the GEM Project, informed the Prime Minister that all aspects of the project, including engineering works and display scenarios, will be finalized by the end of February.

Covering an expansive area of approximately 500,000 square meters, the GEM is poised to exhibit 5,000 relics from Tutankhamun's collection, including 2,000 artifacts that will be publicly displayed for the first time.
