The Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy, Mohamed Shaker, signed a protocol with the Minister of Investments and International Cooperation, Sahar Nasr, for investments worth EGP 2 million to clear the land allocated for the El Dabaa Nuclear Power Plant,  Al Mal News reports.

The protocol follows President Abd El Fattah El Sisi’s directive to clear the mine and war debris from Dabaa in preparation for economic projects that will improve social standards and provide employment opportunities for youth, Nasr noted.

The Ministry of Investments is prepared to facilitate mine clearance in order to attract investment to the region, achieve targeted development, and meet the government’s plans and priorities, Nasr added.

The El Dabaa Nuclear Power Plant will be located along the north-west coast in the Matrouh Governorate. The area includes 11,000 acres.

The signing was attended by the Governor of Matrouh, Alaa Abu Zeid.
