Egypt's Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli welcomed on Wednesday the ministers attending the weekly cabinet session which is being held for the first time at the new government headquarters in New Alamein City.

The PM lauded the great progress achieved in implementing various projects in the new city in less than two years, saying that such progress ensures that Egypt is moving on the right path.

The prime minister reviewed the under-construction projects in the city including the national university, the Technology and Maritime Transport of the Arab Academy for Science, and the heritage city along with the residential units which will be available for various social strata as well as the industrial zone.

Madbouli said activities and services in the new city are meant to continue throughout the year and not just during summer months.

Madbouli also pointed out that the new digital transformation system is set to be launched as of August, through which several e-government services will be available for citizens.

The government is currently working to resolve the long-standing disputes between the ministries of finance, petroleum and electricity, Madbouli said.

The government targets a growth ratio hitting 6 percent in the new budget, he added.
