Description
The idea of having a joint university between Egypt and Japan was first introduced in 2003 as one of the projects conductive to the economic and social development of Egypt, which is essential for peace and stability in the region. After a prolonged period of study and analysis, the two countries formally decided in August 2008 to undergo this project. The government of Egypt allocated the land and promised required funds to construct the university in New Borg El Arab city, Alexandria. E‐JUST is a unique project that reflects the strength of the relations between Egypt and Japan. E‐Just will be realized on a partnership basis between the governments of Egypt and Japan. The Egyptian Japanese University will be located in New Borg EL Arab City 60 kms west of Alexandria. The new proposed campus will be developed adjacent to a developing industrial town of Borg El Arab.
