Ministries of Tourism and Antiquities to Develop Archeological Sites

Monday, 27th February 2017

The Tourism Ministry and the Ministry of Antiquities are to jointly develop the Pyramids Plateau area at a total investment cost of EGP 200 mn, Invest-Gate reports.

Despite the Ministry of Antiquities’ challenge to implement national projects, including Grand Egyptian Museum and the Pyramids Plateau area, the first phase of the Pyramids Plateau area project is scheduled to be finalized in May at a total investment cost of EGP80 mn according to the State Service Information statement.

Prime Minister Sherif Ismail held a meeting earlier with the Minister of Antiquities Khaled El Anany to discuss these obstacles that occurred due to the lack of funding and a lack of 20 annexes in museums located in Kafr El Sheikh, Minya, Assiut, and Aswan.
