Funding Information:
In 2015, Egypt and China signed a framework agreement for the implementation of fifteen projects worth $10 billion, to be funded by Chinese banks and built at least in part by Chinese companies. The projects aim to boost bilateral industrial and investment relations in electricity, petroleum, natural gas, railways, highways, ports, mining, construction materials, chemical and optical industries, textiles, electrical appliances, and other fields. The projects include the establishment of three power plants, railways linking East Cairo with Tenth of Ramadan City, a multipurpose station in Alexandria port, along with train, glass, and leather factories, as well as developing Alexandria-Abu Qir railways.49
