Egypte bouwt een nieuwe hoofdstad

January 6, 2020 - De nieuwe administratieve hoofdstad van Egypte wordt van de grond af
in de woestijn, 35 km ten oosten van Caïro, gebouwd. De stad is met een
oppervlakte van 700 km² het fileprobleem in de huidige hoofdstad verlichten.

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.
