CAIRO – 11 April 2018: Around 85 percent of state-owned Egyptian Chemical Industries’ KIMA 2 project has been finished, according to Deputy Chairman of Chemical Industries Holding Company Waleed el-Rashidy.

Rashidy said that KIMA 2 is expected to be finished by the end of 2018, with a cost of LE 11.6 billion.

A number of the company’s board members will visit the project on Wednesday April 11 to follow up on the latest developments in its implementation which is carried out by the Italian company TechnoNet.

Rashidy also referred to the recent agreement with banks to raise their finance participation in the project to 61.8 percent instead of 51.8 percent, in the presence of Public Enterprise Minister Khaled Badawy.
