Hurghada industrial city to be completed on time: Gov.



Red Sea Governor Ahmed Abdullah confirmed the governorate’s commitment to construct the first industrial city in Hurghada by the previously set dates, seeking to complete all construction works with speed and accuracy so that the project can be opened as soon as possible.

The industrial city will be built on an area of 189,000 square meters in Hurghada at a total cost of more than LE 500 million. This project will be built in two stages and includes 218 small factories and micro plants.

The industrial city in Hurghada is among the industrial zones approved by the cabinet, the governor pointed out, adding that it will provide many employment opportunities for the people of the Red Sea governorate.

He said the industrial city includes small factories on areas ranging from 300 to 600 square meters, which can be extended depending on the potentials of the plant and its equipment.

During an inspection of the project on Tuesday, Abdullah stated that the construction works of all concrete foundations and metal roofs of the industrial complex are now completed, which came at a cost of LE 500 million.

Abdullah said that this project will provide many employment opportunities for the people of the Red Sea governorate and will include medium, small and micro factories. He added that there will be a special warehouse attached to each factory to store products until the time of distribution to the consumer.

He stressed the need for continuous follow-up of the construction works, which must not stop until all work is completed.

The governor also stressed the need to take standards and quality into account while establishing the industrial city.

The governorate always puts in mind the sustainable development of future generations, he said, adding that this is what is being done in the establishment of national projects carried out by the governorate in all cities.
