Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly stressed on Saturday the state’s interest in the speedy completion of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), which will include never-before-seen artefacts of the Egyptian civilization.
Madbouly’s remarks came during his inspection tour of the GEM following the development work in the surrounding area.
During the tour, the PM watched a documentary film documenting the stages of establishing the museum and the various works that have been implemented to develop the surrounding area.
He pointed out that the development witnessed in the area surrounding the museum contributes to achieve a distinguished tourism and civilisation system that provides visitors with a unique experience.
During his inspection of the main halls and galleries, Madbouly listened to an explanation from Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Khaled El-Anany about the rates of completion and development in the museum’s construction.
The minister also presented part of the promotional plan for the GEM and the campaigns that will be launched on various social media platforms, in addition to using all modern promotional means to intensify the museum’s promotional campaigns in various countries of the world, as the museum seeks to provide a unique and exceptional experience for its visitors to learn about Egyptian civilisation.
The minister pointed out that the museum’s management started a project to obtain the Egyptian Green Pyramid certificate, making it the first Egyptian museum to obtain this certificate, explaining that this important step would increase the economic return.
Furthermore, the plan for providing and operating visitor services at the museum was reviewed to ensure providing the best level of services while creating a unique experience for the visitor that combines the past, present, and future of Egypt.
At the end of his tour, the PM was briefed on the developments regarding the Solar Boats Building, which includes the Khufu Boat Museum. The museum will include various forms of content to tell the story of the discovery of King Khufu’s boats and their historical and archaeological importance.
