The Suez Canal expansion plan and the $45 billion "New Capital" city project near Cairo, the construction of one million new homes ($37 billion) are few examples of the mega projects to be implemented in Egypt with the start of the flow of investments that were approved during the "Egypt Economic Summit" within the various vital sectors with a total value of over $100 billion.
