Egypt's finance ministry said Friday a plan was developed to protect public funds, maximize state revenues and raise the efficiency of public spending.

In a statement, the ministry said its representatives to the administrative apparatus, local administration units, public service and economic bodies and independent central agencies are tasked with taking the necessary measures to inventory untapped state assets.

Also, the state-owned assets overlooking the Nile will be inventoried to identify their rental values and payable arrears, the statement said.

Contracts between state bodies and tenants would be adjusted according to the fresh market value, it added.
