Egypt 2019 - Transport

Better transport networks are not only key to fulfilling the country’s ambitions to raise trade volumes with international markets; they will also be useful in properly managing the ongoing urban development taking place across many parts of the country. To reach these goals an increase in private investment participation is required. Moreover, for Egypt to maintain its position as a global maritime transport centre, ongoing improvements in port capacity are key, as well as measures to improve the competitiveness of port operations. Government plans to expand cargo movement across the Nile River will open up opportunities for multimodal transport across the country, and a clear framework to attract more involvement of the private sector in the system should boost the construction and operation of river ports in the pipeline for construction. This chapter contains an interview with Mohab Mameesh, Chairman, Suez Canal Authority; and Chairman, Suez Canal Economic Zone.
