El Sisi inaugurates major land reclamation project

Leading the airwaves last night: The inauguration of a 1.5-mn-feddan agricultural project dubbed “Egypt’s Future” dominated the airwaves at home, with the project getting the most focus by Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime: 11:44), Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 1:30) and others. The project, which aims to boost local production, would see the cultivation of wheat, corn and other crops. President Abdel Fattah El Sisi inaugurated the project.

The project will allow for partnerships between the government and the private sector, Agriculture Ministry spokesman Mohamed El Kersh told Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi (watch, runtime: 3:12). “It’s necessary that there are partnerships with the private sector. The New Delta agricultural project is one seeing joint work by the private and public sector,” he said.
