PM Nazif to Inaugurate Final Phase of the National Project of Automation of Agricultural Land Registration

Prime Minister Dr. Ahmed Nazif is due to inaugurate in January 2009 the final phase of the National Project of Automation of Agricultural Land Registration.

The third phase encompasses the establishment of seven information centers in Kafr El-Sheikh, Damietta, Assuit, Minya, Giza, Sharkia and Behaira and the spread of the project services in 19 governorates nationwide.

In addition to the above seven governorates, the services are offered in Kalyoubiya, Sohag, Beni Suef, Ismalia, Gharbia, Fayoum, Kena, Aswan, Dakahlia, Menofia, Suez and Port Said.

The project scope comprises building a unified database for the corporeal land registry as well as developing all corporeal land registry offices and cadastral administrations in all governorates. It embraces the foundation of two corporeal land registry administrations and two engineering offices in each governorate. The project's all phases will be finalized by the end of 2010.

Two databases, one for five million agricultural land documents and another for agricultural cadastre of 138,000 digitized maps nationwide have been built.

Minister of Communications and Information Technology Dr. Tarek Kamel stated that such a major national project goes in line within the spectrum of raising the performance of public services in Egypt via the utilization of information and communication technology (ICT) tools).

The project entails carrying out the one-stop-shop of the  land registry, which is one of the goals of the project, he added.

In 2004, Prime Minister Dr. Ahmed Nazif assigned the Ministers of Communications and IT, Water Resources and Irrigation and Justice to carry out the national project of automation of agricultural land registration.

In April 2005, a trilateral cooperation protocol was signed among the three ministers. In July 2007, Dr. Nazif inaugurated the first phase of the project.
