Local Development Minister Mahmoud Shaarawi asserted that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi attaches importance to the solid waste management file and follows up efforts to implement a relevant new system with a view to restoring the cultural and aesthetic aspect of Greater Cairo governorates and other governorates nationwide.
Shaarawi asserted the key role of his ministry in implementing those projects in coordination with governorates.
The Minister made the remarks Saturday during a video conference meeting with Dalia Lateef, a senior specialist at the World Bank (WB), to review the latest developments as regards fields of cooperation between the two sides to implement major plans of the solid waste management system.
The meeting also touched on a project to support the improvement of air quality, as well as the efforts exerted to confront pollution in Greater Cairo as part of a $200 million funding agreement signed in February.
Shaarawi hailed ongoing cooperation with the WB, asserting that the ministry considers the bank as a key partner that helped the Egyptian government achieve many successes in many cooperation fields.
Meanwhile, Lateef asserted the importance of speeding up efforts to outline the system of operation and implementation of the project in the coming period after it has already come into effect.
