Egypt's Sisi signs law restructuring Grand Egyptian Museum governance
The museum, located by the Giza pyramids, is scheduled to be completed later this year
Under the law, the museum authority will be tasked with displaying archaeological collections and preparing digital documentation on, recording, securing, maintaining, and restoring the artifacts, said Atef Moftah, the general supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum project.
The authority will also be tasked with organising cultural and scientific activities, and acquainting Egyptians with ancient Egyptian civilization.
He added that the authority will have an independent budget similar to the budgets of economic bodies.
The museum structure, under the new law, will be made up of the board of trustees, headed by the Egyptian president, in addition to the board of directors and a chief executive.
The museum, located by the Giza pyramids, is under construction. It is scheduled to be completed later this year.
