The Egyptian government is planning to launch major public-private partnership (PPP) projects with up to EGP 5 billion in investments.

The Ministry of Finance’s (MoF) PPP Central Unit will complete the procedures required for the tendering of a multi-phased project to build 1,000 co-education language schools after Eid Al Adha.

The first phase of the project includes financing, designing, operating, and maintaining 54 schools, Egypt’s Minister of Finance, Mohamed Maait, revealed on Monday.
