During the meeting, President Sisi directed the SCA to upgrad the East Port Said harbor and a nearby industrial and logistic zone, presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef said.

The work on second waterway has been 87 percent completed with more than 40 dredging machines which completed 100 percent of dry dredge and 87 percent of the whole dredge works.
