CAIRO: The first Cairo Construction Hub (CCH) was inaugurated on Thursday under the auspices of Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly.
The CCH is an exhibition and an educational conference. Its main goal is to boost development and construction projects in Egypt.
It offers a platform for the construction community to come together through live product showcases, business networking and knowledge-sharing experiences.
The inauguration was attended by ministers, ambassadors, and representatives of major companies from the construction and real estate development sectors.
CCH organizer Ahmed Hashem said several events were being lined up under one roof, the most prominent of which was the Urban Development & Sustainable Construction Summit, headed by Neveen Abdel Khaleq.
It will be attended by all officials and institutions linked with the CCH. Palestine’s ambassador in Cairo, Diab Al-Louh, will attend the opening session.
Last Friday, Egypt sent engineers and building equipment to Gaza to begin reconstruction work after Israeli airstrikes left a trail of destruction in the Palestinian enclave.
Egypt brokered a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza rulers Hamas, following which President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi allocated $500 million to fund the rebuilding of devastated areas in Gaza. Egypt also took care of the treatment of those injured in the attacks.
There will be meetings in Cairo on Saturday and Sunday between Palestinian factions. These will focus on pending issues to achieve reconciliation and agree on the mechanisms for the reconstruction of Gaza.
Sources said the meetings would also discuss urgent issues including easing Gaza’s siege and the ceasefire.
