For instance, in 2016 China announced plans to invest EGP152 billion (US$15 billion) into developing the country’s infrastructure. Another large-scale construction project in Egypt is the plan to upgrade the rail system. The Cairo Metro line is a $3.5 billion project, which is expected to significantly ease traffic in the busy capital, Cairo. The airport will be located in the province of Bizerte, about 80km north of Tunis and, when completed, will be the tenth in the North African country. Chinese companies have been involved in many projects in North Africa, with Algeria being no exception.
