This chapter includes the following articles.
From a collection of ideas to cut the number of commuters in Egypt who use their cars to go to work, to multibillion-dollar plans to speed up ships using the Suez Canal; from establishing giant logistics depots to mastermind food supplies to the country, the region and maybe further afield as well, to the futuristic notion of having a two-tier train service with a 350-km per hour train travelling over the top of regular services, there is an urgency to the many plans to get the country on the move. The scale and breadth of transport improvement schemes announced and planned in 2014 is impressive. The country’s finances are being brought back into order, restoring confidence to the markets and the international financial institutions on which Egypt will ultimately need to rely in order to pay for these programmes.
This chapter contains an interview with Mohab Mameesh, Chairman, Suez Canal Authority (SCA).
