CAIRO – 20 March 2020: "Six new high-speed passenger trains will be imported in 2021 as per an agreement signed with Spanish company Talgo," said Egypt’s Minister of Transport Kamel el-Wazir.

The minister stressed the need to adhere to the schedule of importing the first train in March 2021. He further signaled the high technological qualifications of these Spanish trains and clarified that they are stable aluminum-made vehicles that help to reduce the trip’s duration, as they have high operational speeds of up to 160 km/hour.
