Renowned Egyptologist Dr. Zahi Hawass revealed that the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) is expected to open on November 4, 2022.

“This day will mark the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, and the 200th anniversary of the Rosetta Stone’s unlocking,” Hawass said during a phone interview with the “Hadrat Al-Muwatin” program on Al Hadath Al Youm.

Furthermore, the Egyptologist added that the whole world is talking about the GEM, stressing that Egypt has a great civilization which does not exist in any other country.

In the same context, he emphasized that archaeological discoveries are extremely important, particularly after President Abdel Fattah El Sisi paid special attention to these discoveries.

He also affirmed that Sisi helped in creating a spectacular civilization which made him very proud as well as the world.
