" Foreign missions financing excavations for rights of scientific publishing " (Daily News Egypt - Basma Ragab, 16.03.2017)

The work of foreign missions is regulated by an agreement between them and the Ministry of Antiquities

... most of the foreign missions operating in Egypt are coming from France—the most interested country in the Pharaonic civilisation and archaeological discoveries in Egypt—followed by the German, British, and American missions. ...

... The Ministry of Antiquities stipulates that each mission must train two young cadres in the ministry, and a further two inspectors to accompany them—in addition to finishing all restoration works necessary for the discovered pieces at all sites. ...

... the cooperation with foreign missions provides the Egyptian side with financing for excavations and discoveries in exchange for granting the exclusive right of the scientific publishing for five years. Furthermore, the ministry benefits by getting to keep the discovered artefacts and by receiving training for its staff. ...

... He revealed that the money spent by the missions may exceed EGP 1m per season—a month and a half— and includes spending on equipment used in excavations, labour wages including “tipping,” and the cost of restoration and raw materials. ...

Greetings, Lutz.
