ousing and Urban Development

-       Redistributing of population and development on most of the homeland’s area, depending on natural resources.

-       Developing innovative models for the design and construction of low-cost, environment-friendly housing, facilities and utilities which rely on local building materials and new technologies.

-       Reviewing the policies of support for the shift from subsidising certain items, including housing products – which often do not reach deserving citizens – to direct support of citizens to finance their homes.

-       Restructuring real estate tax policies to support the implementation of the strategy to get out of the Nile Delta valley to the new regional growth areas.

-       Re-planning of slums in cities to facilitate the improvement of the housing and service environments for residents of those areas.

-       Reviewing Egypt's wealth of real estate, construction land and agricultural land to ensure using them according to the purpose for which they were allocated, and also re-considering the legitimacy, legality and the value of that allocation so as to benefit the state with fair prices, to maintain the continuity of work by serious investors, to preserve the rights of buyers and clients, and to raise to maximum band the tax rate on speculation transactions pertaining to land, with all its types.

-       Establishing a State lands bank, exclusively competent for sale of state property.


 Transport and Communications


This program aims to achieve integration between the four means of transport: road, river, sea and air, so as to raise the performance efficiency of this sector domestically and internationally, as follows:

-       Establish a Ministry of Maritime and River Transport, along the lines of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, under which operate specialised bodies such as the Suez Canal Authority, the Ports Authority and the River Transportation etc.

-       Revitalise the railways and river transport sectors for the transport of goods, in order to address the current distortion in the share of these methods of transport of total goods transported, on the national level, which does not exceed 5%.

-       Establish a network of new roads to serve urban developments, alleviate congestion in large cities, encourage residents to move out of the narrow (Nile Delta) valley to invest development resources, create new job opportunities, and enhance national security.

-       Construct a new railway line, east of the Nile, that passes through all the governorates of Upper Egypt, from Cairo, with transverse branch lines connecting it to the Red Sea. Also, construct a network of railway lines for the reclamation and reconstruction of the Sinai, so as to enhance national security, serve industrial areas and new mining areas there, serve ports of the Red Sea, and reduce the pressure on the current western line.

Communication and Information


  1. Allow full freedom of competition among telecommunications companies in general, and mobile phone companies in particular, with no limit on the number of companies.

  2. Develop an integrated national program for the nationalisation of communications industry and technologies, starting with components and ending all the way up to design, manufacture and launch of communications satellites.

  3. Expand endeavours in the establishment and development of information infrastructure, especially in the international information network (the internet), and also create internal information network, at local and regional levels.

  4. Support the software industry in Egypt, by all means – moral and physical.


Tourism and Civil Aviation


  1. Protect tourist areas in Ancient Egyptian cities, and along the coasts of the Mediterranean and Red seas.
  2. Encourage the private sector and attract foreign investment to effect more development in the tourism sector.

  3. Market tourism products on Arab and international levels by working on the revitalisation of Egyptian Tourism in the main existing markets, and open new tourism markets.

  4. Double hotel capacity through the development of existing tourist destinations and the targeting of new tourist destinations, with diversification of tourism services.

  5. Provide quality service to tourists, from arrival/reception through to facilitation of customs procedures, transportation to suitable hotels, good hotel service, tourist attraction tours, and right up to the moment of departure from Egypt.

  6. Promote scientific, conference, cultural and religious tourism.

  7. Fast-track establishment of a land-bridge over the Gulf of Aqaba, linking Egypt and Saudi Arabia, to facilitate the movement of Arab tourism between the countries of the east and the west – of the Arab world – through Egypt. This should achieve an additional economic growth, in many areas.

  8. Lift all visa, customs and excise barriers among Arab countries.
