A high-level Russian delegation visited earlier Monday the under-construction Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) in Giza.
They were received by Director of Archaeological Affairs Dr. Tayeb Abbas and Supervisor of the international relations and visitor services Dr. Gehane Nabil.
“The Russian delegation expressed happiness while touring the museum,” Abbas revealed. “They applauded the efforts exerted to accomplish this project.”
Noteworthy, The GEM is set to be officially inaugurated in 2020, according to Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Anany.
The GEM complex is located on an area of approximately 500,000 square metres next to the Pyramids of Giza. It is considered one of the world’s largest museums.
