Chairman of the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone) Mohab Mamish said on Thursday that there are 146 projects carried out in the SCZone, noting that the Suez Canal will remain the safest and the lowest-cost waterway across the world.
There is nothing to be worried about with regard to alternative routes to the Suez Canal, Mamish said in a statement, noting that the SCZone adopts flexible marketing policies that helped lure more giant ships and international shipping lines.
The SCZone chief indicated that talks on establishing the Russian Industrial Zone in the East Port Said region have been finalized.
The zone is scheduled to be set up on an area of 5 kilometers to be a vital Russian export center, he added.
Meanwhile, Mamish said President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is following up work progress at the SCZone.
Sisi issued directives to manufacture 100 fishing boats with the aim of protecting the profession and providing relevant job opportunities, he added.
