Since its initiation in 2015, MMTC has received widespread admiration from a majority of both local and foreign visitors who have toured the project to witness the significant progress implemented across its project phases.
The project's success has been attributed to its model of reaching out to locals within the project perimeter and establishing key contacts and relationships.
MMTC is built with 100% sustainable sources of energy including hundreds of solar-powered streetlights already brightening up freshly paved roads, as well as a 10-megawatt solar power plant that produces clean electricity for the city.
