Grand Egyptian Museum to be managed internationally

Egypt’s antiquities minister says the long-planned Grand Egyptian Museum will have an independent, international directorship in an effort to overcome bureaucracy. Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty said Tuesday the awaited museum near the Pyramids of Giza will be “independent” from the Egyptian government. He spoke at a news conference near its 120-acre construction site. Former antiquities minister and famed Egyptologist Zahi Hawass told The Associated Press in June that the museum must be international because “government routine cannot work for museums.”
