The total investments allocated to drinking water and sanitation projects in the 2019/2020 fiscal year are estimated at EGP 18 billion, Minister of Planning, Monitoring and Administrative Reform Hala el Saeed said.

The minister’s remarks came after a delegation from the ministry and the National Investment Bank made a two-day tour of the three Suez Canal governorates of Suez, Port Said and Ismailia to inspect drinking water and sanitation projects, the ministry said in a statement Friday 12/04/2019.

The investments include about EGP 4.6 billion for drinking water projects with the aim of providing full access to potable water, Saeed said, adding that a sum of EGP 13.4 billion will be allocated to sanitation projects.

The tour comes within the framework of the planning ministry’s keenness to follow up projects of a social and environmental dimension, in addition to those having a direct effect on the people’s health.

The statement noted that those endeavors are among the main targets of Egypt’s Vision 2030.
