Renowned Saudi businessman Sheikh Saleh Kamel, head of the Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Industry, will contribute with $ 500 million to fund a new Egyptian lighting system based on the use of solar energy.

Minister of State for Local Development Adel Labib held a press conference on Sunday at the headquarters of the Cabinet in Cairo, in which he announced the initiative to use solar energy for street lighting.

Furthermore, Labib stated that another project is currently under study, to provide slum areas with electricity.

Saudi Arabia is one of the Arab states that have been endorsing Egypt the most in the past months.

Sheikh Kamel in particular headed several initiatives to encourage Gulf states to invest in Egypt and engage in economic cooperation. Earlier this month, a joint cooperation protocol was signed by Kamel and the Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce to promote Egyptian products and trade to Gulf states.

Kamel also played an influential role during the Egyptian-Gulf Investment Forum last December, as he began following up on the actual implementation of the initiatives discussed in the forum.

“The Egyptian Investment” week is expected to be held in Saudi Arabia in the coming month to attract investors. Moreover, the Saudi sheikh will visit Egypt after the event to meet with the ministers of industry and investment to launch joint projects.

Egyptian Solar Power

Egypt is a land of ancient mysteries. It is a desert country with one long river flowing through it. Desert means lots of sun. Egypt is preparing to build a billion dollar solar power plant with help from a suite of international donors. Construction of Kuryamatt, a 150-megawatt hybrid power plant that will use both solar energy and natural gas to generate electricity, is underway 90 kilometers south of Cairo. Plans for a second large solar plant, in Upper Egypt's Kom Ombo, are also underway. These moves come after severe power cuts crippled the country last year during the hot summer months when Egyptians blast their air-conditioning units, and power up their stoves to prepare Ramadan feasts.
