Sisi says new Suez Canal project will serve new Silk Road



President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has said that Egypt will be a key component for Chinese President Xi Jinping’s initiative to revive the Silk Road.

“The new Suez Canal project will be very important for the initiative,” Sisi said.

During the Egyptian-Chinese business forum on the new Silk Road on Tuesday, Sisi welcomed the foreign investments saying Egypt requires that investing countries are able to bear the financial burden, and carry out mega-projects in Egypt efficiently and quickly.
