Egipto construye una nueva ciudad capital

January 6, 2020 - La Nueva Capital Administrativa de Egipto se construye desde cero en el desierto, 35km al este de El Cairo. La ciudad, que cubre 700km², fue diseñada para aliviar la aglomeración en la capital actual

The project, launched in 2015 by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, aims to offer a clean and efficient base for the government and finance industry, as well as homes for at least 6.5 million people, Reuters said.

The first phase, covering about 168 square km, will have ministries, residential neighbourhoods, a diplomatic quarter and a financial district. A large mosque and cathedral, as well a hotel and conference centre, have already been built.

The Egyptian government plans to start running the country from the new capital from mid-2020.
