New batch of artefacts arrived
From his modern office overlooking the Giza Plateau, where the GEM is soon to see the light of day, Tawfik welcomed the Weekly’s questions with a broad smile. The walls were empty aside from bookshelves and books, and the room as a whole was simply furnished with chairs, tables and a large desk covered with documents.
Tawfik admitted that he has been given a difficult task as the GEM’s first director, given the ministry’s budgetary concerns and problems regarding the realisation of the ambitious architectural design.
