The Chairman of the Authority stressed that the boom that the Suez Canal and its projects witnessed during the past few years would not have been achieved without the permanent support of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, President of the Republic, and his keenness to follow up on developments related to the development of the waterway development projects and the various development and service projects adopted by the Authority.
