    The Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat took, today, an inspection tour in Telecom Egypt (TE) Club in Maadi, to check the progress of work and follow up on the constructions inside the club. He was received by TE Managing Director and CEO Adel Hamed, and a number of TE representatives and the club board members.

    Talaat listened to a detailed explanation of the vision of the club board of directors for the development work carried out inside the club and the action plan for expediting the process of opening of the club to employees. This will help further TE strategy for promoting sports, cultural and social activities among TE employees, thus improving their performance and productivity, encouraging them to develop, excel and innovate, and enhancing their internal communication and team spirit.

    The club board of directors presented the new construction plan, comprising establishing open playgrounds and a number of facilities, including a bank, an administrative and subscriptions building, a squash court and a food court. This is in addition to developing the football stadium, the swimming pool complex and the indoor sports hall.

    For his part, Hamed underscored that the club board of directors set a basic priority in its first sessions, represented in opening the club to TE employees as soon as possible. He said that the new architectural designs of the club have been completed, and will be implemented starting this year.
