Cairo’s new capital will be the new home of 40 countries’ embassies as they are planning to move to the new capital, according to state-run Administrative Capital for Urban Development authority (ACUD) on Tuesday.

ACUD wil be meeting with around 45 diplomatic representatives to discuss the progress in the first phase of the new capital, spokesperson Khaled El Hosseini told Amwal Al Ghad.

The super high-tech new administrative capital will be Egypt’s first smart city. It is planned to be sustainable, housing the ministries, parliament, Egyptian Media Production City, presidential palaces, and embassies.

President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi has inaugurated the first phase of the capital city in July; it will also include 1250 mosques and churches, a 5,000 seat conference center, nearly 2,000 schools and colleges, over 600 medical facilities, and a park that is claimed to become the world’s largest.

The list of states to which the embassies belong are yet to be made public.
