Strategic Plan to Develop Alamein City

Minister of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities Mostafa Madbouly on Sunday 1852014 launched the first stage of the Egypt 2052 Urban Development Plan to start developing the city of Alamein and the rest of the northwestern coast.

At a workshop organized by the Urban Planning Authority, he said the region can accommodate the largest population increase in Egypt, putting the figure at around 30 million people over the coming 40 years.

“We will use the best human and natural resources,” he said, adding that the plan builds desalination stations and exploits solar and other renewable energy.

“And we already started by clearing the coast of mines,” he said. “We want to avoid the negative aspects of old cities in building new ones.”
