The implementation of the presidential “Decent Life” campaign came at the center of talks between Chairman of the Arab Industrialization Organization (AIO) Abdel Monem Altaras and Minister of State for Military Production Mohamed Ahmed Morsi Friday.
The two officials especially discussed the supply of the requirements of projects within the campaign which includes the upgrade of hundreds of villages and rural areas around the nation.
Morsi said projects within the campaign introduce a good chance for increasing dependence on locally-made goods.
This is important especially in the light of directives by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi for depending on local production, Minister Morsi said.
He added that the president also has instructions for benefiting from the same projects in opening employment chances for workers nationwide.
He revealed that his ministry would form a joint panel with the Arab Industrialization Organization to look into the requirements of different projects within the campaign and also make these requirements available.
These requirements, he said, would be purchased in a centralized manner with the aim of reaching the best price deals as well as the highest quality.
Minister Morsi noted that the goods in high demand for the implementation of these projects include sewage plants components, electricity cables, modern irrigation equipment and supplies for the lining of water canals with concrete.
Chairman Altaras said his organization would work to implement the president’s instructions, especially in relation to increasing dependence on locally-made goods.
All state agencies, he said, are cooperating together to implement the “Decent Life” campaign around the nation.
“This is an unprecedented development project,” Chairman Altaras said. “It will change life in the Egyptian countryside altogether,” he added.
