CAIRO - 23 June 2018: Egypt's Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli will visit the Grand Egyptian Museum on Saturday, accompanied by Khaled Al Anani, Minister of Antiquities, to follow up its construction progress.

The project's cost is estimated at $1bn, of which Japan offered $ 300m as a soft loan. The museum is expected to feature more than 100,000 artefacts from the Pharaonic, Greek, and Roman eras, which will greatly boost the tourism sector in Egypt.

The general supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum, Tarek Tawfik, said in a previous statement that the partial opening of the museum would be in the first quarter of 2019.

Tawfik explained that the museum's first stage will be completed by the end of 2018. The Grand Egyptian Museum will witness for the first time the display of all Tutankhamun's artifacts collected in one place which amount to more than 5,000 pieces.
