First Group plans to launch two new projects with a total initial investment of EGP 1.3bn.
Mostafa said that the first project consists of tourist apartments located on an area of 95 feddans in the North Coast, launched by the company mid-last year, with an initial investment of EGP 750m and targeted revenues of about EGP 5bn. It will be implemented within 5 years.
The second project is located on an area of 85 feddans in Galala city, and will be implemented in four phases over four years, with an initial investment of EGP 600m. The company is working on finishing its designs during the current period, according to Mostafa.
