Tahrir Complex at night - ET
CAIRO – 16 July 2020: Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Khaled el-Anani, Minister of Planning and Economic Development and Chairman of Egypt’s Sovereign Fund Hala al-Saeed and Minister of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities Assem el-Gazzar convened on July 16 to discuss the renovation of the famed Tahrir Complex located in Cairo’s historic Tahrir Square.
The convention was held via video conference in the presence of Ayman Suleiman, executive director of Egypt's Sovereign Fund.
During the meeting, Anani stated that after a number of discussions with the investors, a set of proposals and offers were suggested. These include that the Tahrir Complex be converted into a multi-functional building with a variety of cultural, touristic and commercial activities.
Anani also noted that the building can be turned into a large shopping mall, with the first floors used as a garage, the middle floors dedicated for banks and restaurants, and the upper floors used as a hotel to better benefit from the magical view.
