Restoration Centre Aim for Grand Egyptian Museum

Daily News Egypt reports on attempt to establish a restoration centre at the Grand Egyptian Museum.
"One of the centre’s goals is to become a regional restoration hub. In addition, the centre will work on documenting and restoring all the artefacts received by the Grand Egyptian Museum for its opening.
In the future, the centre will become an international training institute for teaching archaeological restoration as well as supporting research related to it.  However, priority is currently being given to the Grand Egyptian Museum exhibits.
The centre will be similar to the restoration centre in Singapore, which was visited by the Egyptian team in September 2012."
