Egypt has announced plans to build an artificial river 114 kilometers long. The project, estimated at $5.25 billion, will improve food security and increase the country’s agricultural exports.
The national project called “New Delta” is now under construction in the Western Desert. The main objective of the project is to expand the area of agricultural land in Egypt. According to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Said Hussein Khalil Sisi, the New Delta project will be the largest construction project in the history of modern Egypt. The course of the river will pass along the new Rawd Al-Farag-Dabaa road.
