Egypt’s Arab Contractors vying for $400 mln Africa infrastructure projects

Egypt’s construction firm, Arab Contractors is seeking to execute some infrastructure flagships worth between $300 million and $400 million in three African countries, an official in the company said on Thursday.

The state-owned firm is currently competing to implement these projects that will include a bunch of drinking water and sewage stations, along with road flagships in Mauritania, Côte d’Ivoire, and Uganda, its head of African sector Ibrahim Mabrouk told Amwal Al Ghad.

“We have recently won a mandate to implement a road project estimated at $54 million in Uganda,” he said.

Arab Contractors delivered Mulago Hospital in Uganda, at a capacity of 500 beds, Mabrouk said, adding that the hospital will be inaugurated in October.

“We have handed over a building for Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tanzania,” he said.
