New Suez Canal Dredging in Full Swing
The digging rate after 125 days of work at the Suez Canal Development Project reached 150 million cubic meters on Thursday, said Chief of Staff of the Army’s Engineering Authority Major General Kamel el-Wazir.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, el-Wazir said that the number of workers at the site of the new project hit 22,000 engineers, technicians and drivers.
The project aims at expanding the Suez Canal region’s role as a global, industrial, and logistics center that is environmentally balanced with an integrated economy.
It is also projected to become global hub due to its logistics and industrial services.
