The Chairman of the Upper Egypt Development Authority, Major General Sherif Ahmed Saleh, stated that the authority has a strategy to carry out projects within Egypt’s Vision 2030. He added that its first objective is to create jobs and encourage investments, whether domestic or foreign, to the governorates of Upper Egypt, and in particular, to 10 governorates.
The authority is working to achieve sustainable development in Upper Egypt, to provide a decent life, and to address the issues, most notably immigration and closing development gaps between regions, said Saleh, chairman of the House of Representatives Local Administration Committee.
To achieve sustainable growth and prosperity for the people of Upper Egypt, he continued, it strives to attract internal and external investments. It also seeks to conduct development projects with the involvement of its people in the governorates of Upper Egypt.
The investment will cover the completion of medical facilities providing curative and specialty care, setting up primary care facilities in the governorate, and completing health insurance infrastructure.
Supporting the requirements of neighborhood groups in Qusayr, finishing up social services buildings, and constructing disabled people’s vocational rehabilitation facilities will also be included in the new investment. The focus will also be on helping rural women safeguard and care for their physical, mental, and social well-being.
The investment also covers rebuilding and renovating the governorate’s current mosques and designing and organizing the entrance to the Red Sea Governorate as part of creating the visual image as one of the strategic plan’s outcomes.
