Allen was joined by executive vice president, Global Network Operations Charlie Dobbie and DHL Express Mena CEO Nour Suliman.
The CEO meeting was organised by Amcham Egypt and took place at the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza. The meeting was attended by nine of Egypt’s most prominent entities and a few members of parliament.
During the meeting the group discussed the current business scene in Egypt and the prospects of growth in the near future. Allen was joined at these meetings by Amr Tantawy, DHL Egypt country manager and Hisham Hassabo, DHL Egypt consultant.
