Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi on Sunday discussed a number of development projects in the country with Prime Minister Mostafa Mabdouly and other ministers, according to a statement from his office.
The projects discussed included urban development projects on Egypt’s northwestern coast.
The president also discussed the latest updates on a development project in the area of St. Catherine and Mount Sinai in South Sinai.
The project is known officially as “the Great Transfiguration over the Land of Peace Project.”
It was first announced in August.
South Sinai's St. Catherine lies at the foot of Mount Sinai, which is believed by some to be the site where Moses received the Ten Commandments.
Planning Minister Hala El-Said, Housing Minister Assem El-Gazzar, and Amir Saeed Ahmed, the president’s adviser for urban development, attended the meeting.
El-Said also presented developments regarding the Sovereign Fund of Egypt and its strategy, which aims to provide investments opportunities and to attract foreign direct investments in order to boost the country’s economic growth.
