The five-way committee for supporting the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) authority and the project's specialized consultancy group approved on Thursday extending until August 21 the deadline of applying for running GEM's services.
GEM curator Tareq Tawfiq said the extension came at a request from several national and international companies that are vying to run services in the grand museum.
The committee will observe international transparency standards during the selection process, he promised.
On June 10 Investment Minister Sahar Nasr invited companies and consortiums wishing to contribute to operating services at the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) from seven to 10 years to submit their résumés that should include previous work experience in managing major cultural, trade and tourism institutions.
She made it clear that applicants should also prove efficiency in the fields of investment, development, operation and maintenance.
