On March 16th, 2015, a 5.854 billion yen ($48 million USD) loan agreement was signed with the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for the New Diret Weir Group Construction Project. This loan will be part of the Japanese International Cooperation Agency's STEP program which implies that the loan will go towards providing Egypt with Japanese irrigation technologies such as overflow double-leaf gates that enable high-precision water-level control. The loan will also go to the construction of regulators, the procurement of equipment related to water management systems as well as consulting services for management and construction.

Special Terms for Economic Partnership (STEP)
A stipulation in JICA ODA loan agreements is the utilization of advanced Japanese technologies and the employment of Japanese firms in overseas projects.
