Egypt

The regularity and richness of the annual Nile River flood, coupled with semi-isolation provided by deserts to the east and west, allowed for the development of one of the world's great civilizations. A unified kingdom arose circa 3200 B.C., and a series of dynasties ruled what is now the Arab Republic of Egypt for the next three millennia. Following the completion of the Suez Canal in 1869, Egypt became an important world transportation hub. The completion of the Aswan High Dam in 1971 and the resultant Lake Nasser have altered the time-honored place of the Nile River in the agriculture and ecology of Egypt. With the largest population in the Arab world, demand for investment in communications and physical infrastructure is strong.
