Egypt’s Ministry of Housing took a Kenyan delegation on an extended tour of project sites in the New Administrative Capital, Capital Gardens, and Badr City, Invest-Gate reports.
The more than eight-hour visit aimed to educate the Kenyan officials on Egypt’s urban experience under President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, as part of discussions on cooperation between the two countries.
The tour began at Badr City Development Authority headquarters with a review of the city’s origins, completed and planned projects, and investments to date. A film showed initiatives like housing for state employees relocating to the new capital.
Delegates then inspected model apartments in the completed first phase of the capital’s 376 buildings and 9,024 staff housing units, plus schools, nurseries, and other amenities. Models of the nearing second phase and its 4,704 units were also viewed.
Next was a briefing on coordination works and green buildings under construction at Capital Gardens. Delegates ascended the Iconic Tower in the central business district to view the capital city landmarks from the 74th-floor building.
The Kenyan officials praised the ministry’s hospitality and successful visit. They said work would focus on increasing cooperation frameworks between Egypt and Kenya.
The tour demonstrated Egypt’s progress in developing new urban hubs under its ambitious capital project as a model for other nations.
