Admiral Mohab Mameesh, Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority and Suez Canal Economic Zone, greets Major General Khaled Fouda, governor of South Sinai, in his office at Suez Canal Authority headquarters in Ismailia.
In the beginning, Mameesh welcomed the Governor and discussed the prospects of joint cooperation and joint major projects between South Sinai Governorate and the General Authority for Economic Development in the Canal Region, headed by Mohab Mameesh. They also discussed pushing forward the projects and accelerating the implementation rates to target the integration of these major projects in line with the strategic plan and vision of the political leadership.
Mameesh also reviewed the most important achievements of the Suez Canal Authority and the Economic Authority of the Canal Region during the past years, which included discussing the development of the main port of Sinai, which has become affiliated to the Suez Canal Economic Authority.
They discussed the proposed proposal by the Governor of South Sinai to include the industrial zone in Abu Zneimeh to the Suez Canal Economic Authority. The proposal aims to accelerate the completion and implementation of this industrial zone, especially in context with the proposal and recommendations of the General Authority for Investment to annex the area to the Suez Canal Economic Authority. This makes the best use of the existing infrastructure in South Sinai from ports and roads and its proximity to the economic zone of the Suez Canal.
During the meeting it was agreed that the Suez Canal Economic Authority will develop the port and the Corniche from the port to the Jubail area, as well as establishing alternative rest areas to be removed to be allocated in the development area of Al-Tur port.
At the end of the meeting, an invitation was sent from the Governor of South Sinai to the Chairman of the Suez Canal Economic Authority to visit the governorate after Eid al-Fitr, which will be an opportunity to tour and inspect the port of Al-Tur and the industrial zone in Abu Zneimah.
The Governor also expressed his sincere thanks and appreciation to Mameesh for his warm hospitality and his constant support for the province. Mameesh also thanked Major Khaled Fouda for his fruitful visit.
