CAIRO, June 29, 2018 - Egypt's Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli is scheduled on Saturday to attend the signing ceremony of a contract with the local firm Carbon Holdings to build the massive Tahrir petrochemical plant in the Suez Canal Economic Zone.

The $10.9 billion complex, which would be the largest in the Middle East, is expected to create 48,000 jobs, the government said in a statement carried by the official Middle East News Agency (MENA) said.

Carbon Holdings CEO Basil El-Baz said it would take more than three years to build, according to the statement.

The government says the 460-square-km economic zone around the Suez Canal will be used to develop an international industrial and logistics hub to attract foreign investment.
