CAIRO (Reuters) – The Egyptian government will start the process of moving offices to a new administrative capital located east of Cairo in December, a spokesman for the presidency said Wednesday.
The city is the most prominent of a series of mega-projects and infrastructure schemes pursued by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who has said that its opening planned for later this year would mark the birth of a new republic, reports Reuters. Though government ministries are largely complete, other areas of the new city and transport links are still under construction. Some Egyptians worry it will be inaccessible and unaffordable for them.
