Egyptians, fresh from a successful bid for democracy, are looking forward to economic development. In this direction, the country’s interim government has adopted the “Desert Development Corridor” project as its flagship programme. The project was created using satellite imagery. It will include installation of new transportation routes to an undeveloped area of desert running parallel to the Nile River Valley and Delta.
The project would open up new land for urban development, commerce, agriculture, tourism and related jobs. It is seen as a source of hope for the young revolution generation who is already expressing keen interest in it.
