Abbas said: "We are delighted to sign the contract and to begin the implementation of the first phase of the CityGate project, which is a great addition to its location next to the Administrative Capital. We will support the project and overcome any obstacles it faces, in collaboration with Qatari Diar; certainly, considered one of the largest and most distinguished companies."
Al-Attiyah said: "CityGate project is expected to provide nearly 200,000 job opportunities during the period of its implementation, and Qatari Diar is in the process of announcing its development and investment plans and strategic partnerships on all of its owned lands in Egypt before the end of the year."
The company's investments in the Egyptian market exceed $3bn, distributed over several projects on an area of more than 40 million square meters, in the fields of tourism, residential and mixed units.
