Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly held a weekly cabinet meeting at the government’s headquarters in the New Administrative Capital (NAC) in which several decisions were made regarding various issues.

The most paramount of said decisions is that the PM agreed to except the families of civilian victims and casualties of military, terrorist, and security operations from the conditions for obtaining housing units via housing initiatives, similar to the families of martyrs and the wounded of the armed forces and the police.

They will also be subjected to the same pricing rules.

He said this comes as part of the state’s interest in providing care and support to these families in appreciation of their sacrifices during the defining moments that the country went through.

Furthermore, the Cabinet approved a presidential decision to contribute €83m to the second phase of the programme to support electricity and green growth.

The programme aims to work on achieving sustainability and governance of the electricity sector by strengthening it, diversifying power sources, in addition to promoting green energy and efficiency.

Additionally, Madbouly directed intensifying the presence of ministers and various work crews at ministries’ headquarters in the government district in the NAC, noting that this comes within the framework of the state’s plan to move the government to the NAC completely soon.

The PM also reviewed his recent visit to the Tunisian capital at the head of a high-level delegation that included a number of ministers, officials, and representatives of the business community to discuss ways to support and enhance aspects of cooperation between the two brotherly countries.

Moreover, he referred to the meetings that took place between officials of the two countries as well as the convening of the 17th session of the Egyptian-Tunisian Joint Higher Committee as well as the Egyptian-Tunisian Economic Forum.

Furthermore, Madbouly stressed that work will be done to expedite the translation of the cooperation documents signed between the two brotherly countries in various fields in an effort to raise the level of cooperation and coordination to a broader field and achieve the interests and aspirations of the two countries.
