The Sinai Development Committee is preparing a draft law to guarantee the best ways to use and manage land in Sinai, and allow citizens of the peninsula to own land there.
According to the law, a special authority would be formed for the comprehensive development of Sinai. It would be tasked with creating job opportunities, improving services and opening a university for the residents of the peninsula.
It would also regulate the buying and leasing of land for Egyptians, while foreigners would still be banned from such practices.
The committee is meeting with Sinai tribal elders in two weeks in order to address their problems.
