Old Cairo’s Al-Fustat will be revamped on Egyptian President’s directives

The revamp of Al-Fustat Garden in Old Cairo has been ordered directly by Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi to restore the urban nature of the area and increase its landscaping.

According to a statement by the presidency, al-Sisi ordered for the rehabilitation of the area to integrate with the development of nearby Ain El-Sira lake project and the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation (NMEC).

His directives come during a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and Housing Minister Assem El-Gazzar.

The meeting tackled the implementation status of several national projects, including new cities, roads, utilities, housing and the development of slums.
