The New Administrative Capital (NAC) will finally be inaugurated at the end of 2021. Prime Minister Dr. Mostafa Madbouly has ordered the planning procedures for the inauguration to start immediately, stating that the event must live up to the massive scope of the project.

Government services in the NAC will begin in August after government employees have relocated to their new headquarters. The experimental period is meant to ensure that everything is in running order. The 700 square kilometre city includes a government district that houses 10 ministerial complexes for 34 separate ministries, in addition to the House of Representatives. A staggering total of 52,300 state employees will be working in these complexes, with the whole of the NAC having a 6.5 million person capacity.
