Egypt has officially inaugurated the city of New Alamein, 200 km west of Alexandria. President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and his Arab guests visited the city and the north coast resort of Regal Heights on Monday night, to celebrate the incredible Egyptian achievement.

The Egyptian president was joined by UAE President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Iraqi Prime Minister Mostafa Kadhimi, according to a statement from the Presidential Spokesperson Bassam Rady.

It is not expected to compete with traditional Red Sea tourist destinations such as El Gouna, Hurgada and Sharm as they are positioned as a winter destination for northern and eastern European tourist markets.

A 250 km highway that crosses the western desert was built specifically for this city, linking it to Cairo.
