Said Port
Time£º2009/11/6 Clicks£º2240

Tianjin and Port Said  are friendly associated on November, 21st, in 1991.

Port Said is a northeastern Egyptian city near the Suez Canal, with an approximate population of 515,007 (2001).

The economic base of Port Said is fishing and industries, like chemicals, processed food, and cigarettes. Port Said is also an important harbour both for exports of Egyptian products like cotton and rice, but also a fueling station for ships that pass through the Suez Canal. Port Said also thrives on being a duty-free port, as well as a summer resort for Egyptians.

There are numerous old houses with grand balconies on all floors, giving the city a distinctive look. Port Said's twin city is Port Fouad, which lies on the eastern side of the canal. The two cities coexist, to the extent that there hardly is any town centre in Port Fouad. The cities are connected by free ferries running all through the day, and together they form a metropolitan area with over a million residents.

The diocese of Port-Said for the Coptic Orthodox Church was founded in 1976 by his grace Bishop Tadros. In 1993, the late subdeacon Nosshy Attia Anbary wrote the history of the diocese in Arabic.

In addition to its port, the city is served by Port Said Airport.
