Cairo isn’t the problem. Subscribe and turn on notifications 🔔 so you don't miss any videos: 🤍goo.gl/0bsAjO In 2017, Egypt’s government announced it would build a new capital city 45 kilometers outside of Cairo, the current capital. It was a shocking announcement since Cairo, a city of more than 10,000,000 people, has been the capital of Egypt for decades. The government claims that Cairo has become too overcrowded and that moving the capital will give both Cairo’s residents and government workers more space. But this excuse is not new. For decades, Egypt’s rulers have been building brand new cities in the desert. None of them have solved Cairo’s density issue. And based on how construction is going, this new capital won’t be a solution either. So why does Egypt want a new capital? Well, it has a lot to do with the political revolution in 2011. Watch this episode of Vox Atlas to understand the real reason behind Egypt’s giant new capital city. Sources: Mohamed Elshahed’s extensive expertise on architectural history and urbanism helped us understand why creating new cities and communities doesn’t actually improve livelihoods in Cairo: Nasr City was once Egypt’s new capital, but things went wrong: 🤍cairobserver.com/post/114391196879/nasr-city-was-once-egypts-new-capital-but-things#.YxdfIezMLUY Revolutionary Modernism?

هذا الي فالحين فيه الكذب و التاليف !!! ..العاصمة الجديدة هي وجه حضاري و مشرف لمصر و العرب و افريقيا !!! .. و الغرض منه اقتصادي بالمقام الاول !!! .. كيف المستثمرين يستثمرون بمكان ضيييق و مزدحم مثل القاهره !!؟؟؟ .. بينما الاراضي المصرية شاسعه و وفيره ولله الحمد !!! .. …و بعدين قدر الامكان يجب الابتعاد عن النيل و جعله فقط للزراعه وليس البناء على الاراضي الخصبه !!!!! . القاره العجوز و الغرب لا يستطيع عمل شي متطور و رائع كهذا !!! .. لذلك الكذب و التدليس هو هوايتهم !!!!

In 2022 we the Egyptian already tried to do revaluation but it didn't happen because of the fast response of the military to famous places that a revaluation starts from around the country such as Tahrir and also because no one wanted to get their family and children died, they know the military would shoot them

Smart decision. Far away from people. More quiet place and safe for government.

I think it's a very brave decision taken by the government. Same is the condition of Indian Capital Delhi and Indian Financial Capital Mumbai if we look at the problem of Overpopulation and Living Standards.
