Egypt President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi requested the government on Monday to meet the deadlines set for the ongoing urban development projects nationwide.
He underlined the need to complete these projects according to the highest quality standards during a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and Minister of Housing, Utilities and Urban Development Assem El-Gazzar.
The meeting focused on the housing ministry's plans and projects in several new urban communities under construction, topped by the New Administrative Capital, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said.
El-Gazzar posted the president on the latest progress in the new capital's Green River project and Central Business District as well as on other urban development projects, including New Mansoura City, New Aswan City and New Alamein City.
The minister also reviewed the latest developments on an urban development plan to revive historic Cairo, including the Maspero Triangle and Magra El-Oyoun Wall, Rady added.
El-Gazzar briefed El-Sisi on the outcome of Egypt's recent participation in the 10th World Congress of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, at which the minister showcased the designs and building progress of the towers under construction in the New Administrative Capital.
