President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi urged state officials on Saturday to localise the components of the water desalination technology in a bid to achieve further progress in this field.
El-Sisi stressed maximising the amount of water coming from desalination and treatment water stations, a statement by the presidential spokesman, Bassam Rady, read.
He urged the integration of the water desalination strategy with the state’s general policy for the wise management of water.
The president ordered officials to continue conducting further studies and experiments in this field to reach the best outcome.
The president’s directives come “within the general framework of building the national capacity of the state in all fields,” the statement noted.
The meeting was attended by Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli, Minister of Planning Hala El-Saeed, Minister of Housing Assem El-Gazzar, Presidential Adviser for Urban Planning Amir Sayed Ahmed and Chairman of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority Ihab El-Far.
The meeting reviewed the state’s strategic plan in terms of seawater desalination plants, Rady said.
During the meeting, the president reviewed the operational desalination plants and those under construction or set to be built.
