Completed in 1869, the original canal revolutionized international trade by connecting the Red Sea to the Mediterranean, a shortcut between East and West that spared ships the long journey around the southern tip of Africa. The canal stretched a hundred miles, and 20,000 conscripts a year worked 10 years digging it, according to the official history. Parts of the canal are too narrow for two-way traffic. Canal authorities arrange for ships to take turns passing in convoys heading in alternate directions, and Egypt has been trying for decades to reduce the bottlenecks. The authorities added three side channels in 1955 and another three in 1980. The government has also worked in recent decades on dredging projects to deepen the canal for ever-larger ships. The new side channel to open on Thursday adds 30 miles in an attempt to allow two-way traffic for more of the passage. Although the new channel will not yet allow two-way traffic for the full length of the canal, it will expedite passage by allowing longer or more frequent convoys to pass. That can help attract traffic. For shipping companies deciding between the Suez Canal and other routes, ?it is all about time, and ?how much time can I save?? ? said Willy C. Shih, a professor at Harvard Business School who studies manufacturing and transportation. The creation of jobs, however, will depend on attracting investors to build factories or logistics facilities in planned industrial zones around the canal. And experts said there was little reason to think that shorter transit time would attract investors

The existing canal is operating well below maximum capacity, in part because shipping volumes remain below their peak eight years ago. Transport volumes are sagging again this year because of the economic downturn in China and reduced Western demand for Persian Gulf oil.

The real advantage of the new channel is that it is expected to lower the average transit time for ships, possibly by several hours. But Mr. Sisi?s government has told Egyptians that the canal?s expansion aims to add $100 million a year to the economy and create a million jobs, and ?those numbers are just totally impossible,? said Reem Abdel Halim, an Egyptian economist.

The ?new canal,? however, is in reality a parallel side channel running about one-third the length of the existing waterway. And Mr. Sisi?s promises about its rewards, economists and businessmen say, will depend on the resolution of the same problems holding back the rest of Egypt?s economy, including poor governance and a lack of transparency, dependability and public security. The hype about the canal, some analysts say, does little to ease the doubts of investors.

BRUSSELS ? The International Monetary Fund?s declaration that it would not back a new bailout for Greece unless the pact substantially reduces the debt burden on Athens clouded the prospects on Wednesday for quick approval of an aid plan. The I.M.F. move also reopened a debate that European leaders thought they had settled during contentious negotiations last weekend. The I.M.F.?s public signal on Tuesday that it would continue to press for additional cuts in Greece?s debt repayments put it in conflict with the country?s European creditors. The deal announced Monday morning stated that the creditors would not forgive any Greek debt and offered only a general assurance of further discussions about reducing annual debt payments by stretching out payment periods or reducing interest rates. The fund?s decision to go public with its stance suggested that the draft agreement would be only the starting point for further negotiations about the sustainability of Greece?s debt and the willingness of its lenders to recognize they might not get all their money back.

Diplomats also came up with unusual procedure to ?snap back? the sanctions against Iran if an eight-member panel determines that Tehran is violating the nuclear provisions. The members of the panel are Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, the United States, the European Union and Iran itself. A majority vote is required, meaning that Russia, China and Iran could not collectively block action.
