Egypt and Integrated Maritime Policy

General presentation: Maritime facts

Egypt has a relatively large maritime space in the Mediterranean, having claimed an EEZ (and not having a highly proximate opposite State) and having a Mediterranean coastline which stretches for 1100 km.

Egypt additionally has a coastline in the Red Sea, which is connected to the Mediterranean Sea via the Suez Canal, resulting in very intense maritime traffic in Egyptian waters: the Suez canal carries in excess of 15,000 vessels annualy.
