A statement released by the Egyptian Cabinet Presidium said that Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli met with the Chairman of the Board of Directors of ACWA Power, where they referred to “the contract that was signed today with the Ministry of Electricity for the company to invest $1.5 billion to build the largest stations in the Middle East to generate electricity from wind energy.

The volume of Saudi investment in Egypt is over $32 billion and Egypt is looking to attract more investment in the coming period by inviting investors, especially from the Gulf countries, offering special facilities and licenses, and launching a package of projects and investment plans in front of investors.
