Undertaken by China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC), the CBD project in Egypt's new administrative capital involves the construction of 20 towers, including a 385-meter-high skyscraper expected to be the tallest in Africa upon completion.
It "will be done within the framework of the concept of building a community with a shared future for humanity," Kashin said.
