Egypt Merges the Ministry of Sate for Administrative Development with the Ministry of Local Development

Egypt - Thursday, March 13, 2014

Earlier this month, Egypt formed a new government headed by Ibrahim Mahlab, Minister of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities in the former government of Dr. Hazem Beblawi which resigned on 24 February 2014, in the context of major protests in the country.
