Eng. Sherif Selim، adviser of the Minister of Housing، Facilities and New Urban Communities for the national projects، said that government should start constructing more new towns to assimilate the growth in population.
He affirmed that those towns will alleviate pressure on the urban centers in Delta and Upper Egypt.
He went on to say that any new towns must avoid mistakes linked to the standing new towns such as 6th October and 10th of Ramadan.
Eng. Selim criticized experience of the standing towns.
They failed to achieve targets of sustainable development.
