The Suez Canal is one of the most strategic passages in the world that connects the West to the East, connecting the Red Sea with the Mediterranean sea. It has been created to decrease the time of passing between Africa and Asia and Europe. You will get to see the tremendous Cargo Ships, oil carriers, and passengers cruise ship going through Suez Canal which was opened for traffic in 1869 and has been renovated more than one time until the last renovation that has been conducted by Egypt's current government due to its unique geographic location. It has great importance in driving development in Egypt and pushing the wheel of the Egyptian economy in the global trade hub and global logistics center, as it cost each of the boats an average of half million American Dollars to sail through the canal from one side to the other, which makes it the main source of the Egyptian national income since it has been nationalized in 1956.
