CAIRO, Egypt

The Egyptian government and the European Union on July 11 signed a $25 million USD loan agreement for drinking water improvement projects in northern Egypt.

Most of the funding will be used to expand production at drinking water treatment plants in the Damietta region, although the project will also rehabilitate old plants and build new water intakes and pipeline networks.
