Antiquities Minister Khaled el Anani chaired on Sunday 23/9/2017 the first meeting of a higher committee to supervise the implementation of Rosetta city monuments project.
The committee’s meeting, the first to be organized since its formation in August, comes as part of the high attention paid by the government to the development of Rosetta city, which is considered the second biggest town containing Islamic monuments in Egypt after Cairo.
In a statement, Mohamed Abdel-Latif, assistant minister of antiquities for archaeological sites and head of the committee asserted that several meetings will be held during the coming phase to define the broad lines and set the optimal vision before beginning the implementation of the project.
The project aims to renovate the city to become a new museum of Islamic monuments and put it on the world’s tourism map over the upcoming three years, he said.
