Political unrest in Egypt is not affecting work on the mall, confirms George Kostas, CEO of UAE-based retailer Majid Al Futtaim Properties. Mall of Egypt, the 160,000-square metre mega-mall being developed by Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) Properties in Cairo, is proceeding on track despite unrest in the country, a senior official confirmed. “We are on track to deliver it by January 2016,” George Kostas, the CEO of MAF Properties told Gulf Business. “We faced some delay last year for one or two months, but the contractor is doing well. They are making good progress on the site. “I’m very pleased that we have worked around three and a half to four million man hours on the site without one major incident – no fatalities or major injuries on site, which is an outstanding outcome so far.” He added: “I’m confident we will carry that track record all the way to the end.” The $800 million project, dubbed as being a sister brand to Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, will feature international fashion and lifestyle retail brands, a ski park, a 17-screen cinema, a family entertainment centre and over 50 food and beverage outlets. The construction contract, worth $400 million, was awarded to a 50-50 joint venture between Orascom Construction and BESIX Group in 2012. While the original completion date was set for summer 2015, it has since been moved to early 2016. GROWING TURMOIL Egypt has been in a state of unrest since 2011, when former dictator Hosni Mubarak was toppled by public protests. A parliamentary election held in June 2012 led to the appointment of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi as Egypt’s president. However, he was again ousted from power last year by the military, leading to mass protests across the country. Earlier this year, former military man Abdel Fattah el-Sisi took charge as Egypt’s new president. Despite the chaotic situation in the North African nation, Kostas says the company is confident about the country’s future. “I think the situation in Egypt is very different to other parts of the region – the Egyptians are very proud people, very concerned and careful about what happens to their country. I think this is an opportunity for Egypt to consolidate and build itself and there’s enormous amount of support from its population for it to succeed. “So from that perspective what happened last year for us didn’t disrupt our business at all. In fact we reconfirmed our support for our investment in the country – we have been there for almost 20 years. “We have taken a long-term view – we like Egypt, we like the opportunity it offers our businesses, we are very committed to the country and as a result, people have supported us,” he added.

A housing development company owned by Egypt and Saudi Arabia said on Wednesday it was increasing its capital by $245 million, a four-fold rise, to build houses in Egypt, in a further sign of support for the country from its key Gulf ally. Egyptian state news agency MENA said Saudi Arabia would inject $124 million dollars into the Saudi Egyptian Construction Company (SECON), with Egypt contributing 100 feddans (103.8 acres) of land in three cities worth about the same amount. Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab neighbours Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates have given more than $20 billion to help Egypt since the ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi last July following mass protests, leading to the election of Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as president last month. Saudi King Abdullah stopped in Cairo briefly last week to meet with Sisi in a symbolic visit that demonstrated the king’s strong support for the former army chief. The Gulf monarchy sees Cairo as a crucial partner against the rise of radical Sunni Islamism in the region. According to MENA, Egyptian Housing Minister Mustafa Madbouly told reporters the investment would be used “to establish a large number of housing units to encourage initiatives to build medium-income housing units”, without providing specifics. Arabtec Holding, Dubai’s largest-listed construction firm, agreed with the Egyptian army in March to build one million houses for lower-income households in one of the region’s biggest projects valued at $40 billion.
