Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly visited Alexandria on Wednesday to inspect a number of projects under the Decent Life Presidential Initiative in the village of Abu Sir, which is in the Borg Al-Arab municipality.
Madbouly was accompanied by Governor of Alexandria Mohamed Al-Sharif and Assistant Head of the Engineering Authority of the Armed Forces Ashraf Hosny, along with a number of officials of the Engineering Authority and executive leaders in the governorate.
The PM stressed that the initiative and its affiliated projects are the government’s top priority.
The giant national project aims to improve the quality of life for people living outside the capital by establishing more robust infrastructure and services.
Madbouly was also briefed on the projects being implemented in Alexandria by the Engineering Authority, which confirmed that it is implementing 86 projects within the presidential initiative in four villages and 45 other communities in Borg Al-Arab that will serve the municipality’s 135,000 civilians.
Moreover, the authority indicated that 27 projects have been completed so far and the rest of the projects are underway, explaining that they cover sanitation, water, electricity, social solidarity, local development, health, youths and sports, agriculture, and roads.
The PM then followed up on the progress of work on the Services Complex in the village, which work began on in August 2021 and is planned to be delivered by the end of this August. The authority noted that the complex includes a technology centre, offices for the civil registry, a real estate department, catering, mail, a social solidarity unit, a local unit, and a local council.
Furthermore, Madbouly inspected the family medical unit being established in the village of Abu Sir, where the head of the engineering division in the northern region explained that the project is based on raising the efficiency of two buildings, the first of which includes clinics and the second houses the medical staff.
