Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi followed up Saturday on the executive position of the ‘Great Transfiguration on the Land of Peace Project’ in the vicinity of Jabal Musa and St. Catherine in Sinai, reviewing all the operational details of the project.
Al-Sisi met with Mahmoud Nassar, the Head of the Central Agency for Reconstruction; Mostafa Mounir, the Assistant Minister of Housing; and Maher Esteno, a consultant for the project.
Moreover, the president ordered that the project be integrated with the efforts to develop the city of St. Catherine and put it in the appropriate position it deserves, as well as to maximise the use of the city’s tourism potential on the archaeological, environmental, religious, and medical levels, in addition to upgrading all buildings and facilities of the place.
He also directed the provision of all services to visitors of this unique place while preserving the environmental and visual character of the place, as well as taking into account the considerations of sustainable development through the study of reliance on clean and renewable energy, in addition to paying attention to agriculture, green spaces, and urban coordination.
Furthermore, the meeting witnessed a review of all the components planned to be developed within the project, including the establishment of a new visitors’ centre, an ecolodge, an integrated mountain hotel, and a new administrative complex.
It also included reviewing the development of the Bedouin area, housing units, pedestrian paths, raising the efficiency of the infrastructure and facilities, and flood prevention work, as well as the establishment of a “Peace Square” for various celebrations, activities, and performances.
