CAIRO – 25 April 2018: Egypt’s Minister of Housing Mostafa Madbouly announced on Wednesday that the schools inside the New Administrative Capital will be inaugurated in 2019/2020.
The announcement came during the minister’s meeting with the owners of the private schools who received lands from the ministry.
Madbouly appealed to the Ministry of Education to facilitate the procedures and licenses to the owners of the schools as fast as they can.
During the meeting, Abdulmutallab Mamdouh, vice president of the New Urban Communities Authority for Development and Urban Development also announced that until now there are seven schools inside the New Administrative Capital, noting that there is a heavy turnout of school owners to get land to build schools.
With an area of 170,000 feddans (176,460 acres), the New Capital will include 20 residential areas expected to accommodate 6.5 million people and a road network 650 kilometers in length. The capital will include an international airport and an electric train to link it with the 10th of Ramadan and El-Salam cities.
It will feature 1,250 mosques and churches, a 5,000-seat conference center, nearly 2,000 schools and colleges, over 600 medical facilities, and a park that is projected to be the world’s largest.
It has been confirmed that the New Administrative Capital will include six international universities from the United States, Britain, Hungary, Canada, Sweden and France, said Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Khaled Abdul Ghaffar early November 2017.
This was during the International Education Conference held in the United Kingdom on Nov. 1, 2017, entitled “Cross Boundary Education in Egypt and the Chances of Investment in the Higher Education.”
