Advantage Austria Cairo team trip to the New Suez Canal

28. October 2015

Last but not least the team of Advantage Austria Cairo finally did it. A visit to the New Suez Canal. A presentation at the Suez Canal Authority started off the morning. We received an overview of the objectives, investment opportunities, importance and future plans of the Suez Canal Development Zone.   The highlight of the trip was a firsthand inspection of the old and the new Suez Canal by boat. In between big container and tanker ships the size and achievement of the project left an extraordinary impression.

Did you know that the Austrian engineer Alois Negrelli featured prominently in the planning of the Suez Canal in the 1860s and that Austrian experts are helping with “Egypt's gift to the world”, the New Suez Canal project, by providing engineering services for the tunnel projects crossing the Suez Canal?
