Egyptian youth joins hands with Chinese mentor to build skyscrapers in desert

In a desert about 50 kilometers east of the Egyptian capital, Cairo, in northern Africa, towering buildings dot the skyline. Abdel Rahman Shafik, a local employee of China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) Egypt, says that building skyscrapers in the desert relies on Chinese experiences. Faced with the difficulties of the construction process, he teamed up with his Chinese mentor, Zhou Fengfeng, and found a "Chinese solution." Inspired, he hopes that one day Egyptian engineers could also build "legendary" construction projects around the world like those of their Chinese peers.
