Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi reviewed on Sunday the workflow of the under-construction rural development project.
This came during El-Sisi’s meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, and the ministerial group supervising the Haya Karima (Decent Life) initiative, presidential spokesman Bassam Radi said.
El-Sisi directed the officials to harness all of the country’s resources and spare no effort to render such a project a success.
The rural development project, which covers about 1,500 villages in phase one, seeks to upgrade infrastructure in villages, including water, sewage, power, natural gas and road services.
It also includes lining irrigation canals for the effective use of water and improving healthcare, education and social protection services.
The project seeks to achieve comprehensive development in all Egyptian villages by improving infrastructure and services available in them.
The project targets 4,584 villages in total, at an estimated cost of EGP 700 billion.
