Egypt, UAE choose army-linked company to build wheat silos
Egypt and the United Arab Emirates said on Saturday they had contracted a state-run company headed by a retired Egyptian army officer to build wheat silos that are a key part of the UAE's $4.9 billion aid package to Cairo.


The choice of an army-affiliated company comes after Reuters reported in March that the UAE was working directly with the Egyptian army to ensure the project was conducted efficiently. (Reuters)
