Participation of the private sector

Consequently, the ministry of finance is working to attract private sector investments in order to benefit from its expertise and its operational efficiency in numerous fields.

According to the contracts, 24 new schools with 1,000 classrooms will be established  in seven govern-orates, namely Cairo, Giza, Damietta, Gharbeya, Sharqeya, Qaliubiya, and Menoufiya.

Investors in charge will build the schools, equip them with necessary equipment for operation and run them for a period of 30 years after which, the schools’ ownership will be then transferred to the ministry of education.
