Minister of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities Assem El Gazzar has held a meeting, in the presence of Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation Mohamed El Quseir, along with other state officials, to discuss the government’s strategy on its land acquisition and management, Invest-Gate reports.

During the meeting, El Gazzar agreed to form a joint committee from both ministries and official agencies to carry out its tasks, including an accurate inventory of all transferred state-owned land plots, all documented decisions of transfer, and the delivery of all plots. This comes as part of a presidential order to put the state’s asset into its best benefit.

On his part, El Quseir emphasized accuracy and transparency when proving land ownership and acquisition. Each party, which obtains official transfer, should present all documents of its land ownership and prepare a complete file for each plot, including its site, or obstacles of implementation process; then coordinate with National Center for Planning State Land Uses (NCPSLU) Development.
