Arab states donate 6 ferries to Egypt

Is Egypt that poor that we cannot afford $70 million for 6 ferries? Do we have to beg for everything. Assuming that we do, why does the government have to go and ask for ferries? I thought the mantra nowadays was a slimmer government. Maybe the plan is to get the ferries for free and have a "friendly" private company operate it on behalf of the government: "He added that they will be managed by a "specialised company" that will ensure that the ships conform to high safety standards." So looks like Jimmy likes the ferry business now :-)
