Development of Egypt under Rule of Nasser

The Revolution of 1952 resulted in changing Egypt entirely and led to great developments. The Agrarian Reform Law which declared the abolishment of the landowner's class, limiting the landholdings to 200 feddans and giving the peasants a piece of land between two to five feddans was issued in the same year. The law also encouraged the investment in industry and worked on supporting the regime. Improvements took place during the rule of Abd al-Nasser such as: improving education, giving equal chances for both boys and girls, rising wages, reducing working hours and creating new job opportunities.
