Egyptian government reveals plans to build new capital city east of Cairo

“The Egyptian government has formally announced plans to build a new capital city east of Cairo. The plans involve moving the country’s parliament, ministries and foreign embassies and the construction of a new administrative and business centre able to house up to 5 million people and feature a theme park ‘four times bigger than Disneyland’. Housing minister Mustafa Kamel Madbuli told a global investor conference the new city would relieve pressure on overcrowded Cairo, with its population of 18 million expected to double in coming decades.”
