The exhibit, under the title 'The Capital of Hope,' is held from 20 to 22 February in one of New Cairo's hotels, featuring a number of real estate development projects in the New Administrative Capital.
In a press conference held at the inauguration, Abdeen said that the Egyptian government will transfer its ministries to the New Administrative Capital on 30 June 2020.
