Public Policy Hub
Description or Abstract
This policy paper addresses the current Egyptian Government’s decision to establish a New Capital City (NCC) and analyzes the challenges facing the policy of moving the offices of public employees of the Egyptian central government from Downtown Cairo to the new administrative city halfway between Suez and Cairo. These challenges include the size of government bureaucracy as determined by the level of its modernization and technology usage, accessibility to housing and services as determined by the payment methodology, and connectivity between the old and new capital cities based on transportation efficiency and the methods of moving employees.
