Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi yesterday recognised that he is taking difficult measures for the development of the country and they are making things difficult for Egyptians, Sputnik Arabic reported.

Al-Sisi took part in the inauguration of the fifth edition of Egypt's international energy conference, Egypt Petroleum Show (EGYPS 2022), and said that the country had spent about $400 billion to develop infrastructure projects over the past seven years.

He recognised that in order to implement the mega development projects, he inflicted difficult economic measures on the Egyptians.

In order to make Egypt a centre for electricity, he added, networks should be able to bear the distribution of electricity to Egypt, Libya, Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

He also affirmed that Africa was lagging behind the rest of the developing world in its progress for historical reasons.
