President-elect Mohamed Morsi has met with experts, including a number from Japan, in order to tackle Egypt's traffic crisis.

Improving the country's endemic transportation and congestion problem was one of the things Morsi vowed to do during his first 100 days in office.

Yasser Ali, the president-elect's temporary spokesperson, said the meeting is one of many set to take place in the coming days.

Mohamed Morsi, a long-time member of the Muslim Brotherhood, has vowed to tackle the key issues of traffic, bread, gas, security and public sanitation during his first 100 days in office.  

Egyptian activists have set up a Facebook page and website called to monitor the new president's performance.
