Information and Decision Support Center IDSC affiliated to the Cabinet confirmed that what has been circulated on social media outlets regarding leasing the Pyramids area for a foreign company for 20 years is false and imprecise. Some false statements have been previously published، stating that the ministry is planning to lease the area for 20 years in return for great capital gain. The Information and Decision Support Center IDSC communicated with the Antiquities Ministry، which clarified that a foreign company specialized in lighting and sound has proposed to develop the special show being held in Egypt entitled “Light and Sound”.
The proposal has not been yet approved to this day as it is being studies and overlooked by committees within the ministry. The ministry has also confirmed that the Ministry of General Businesses is responsible for finalizing any contracts between the “Light and Sound” company and other companies specialized in developing shows held in the Pyramids area that require light and sound.
