CAIRO – 15 August 2018: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi arrived in Upper Egypt’s Beni Suef Governorate to inaugurate the Middle East's largest industrial complex for cement, marble and granite.
The industrial complex comprises three major cement factories producing 20 percent of Egypt's cement production.
Each plant has production lines with a total of six lines sufficient to produce more than 11 million tons of cement per year and more than 37,000 tons per day.
The project took 18 months on an area of five square kilometers. Sisi ordered the construction in May 2016.
The complex provides thousands of direct and indirect employment opportunities, mostly to citizens of Upper Egypt.
Many national and international companies have contributed in constructing the complex.
