Euromoney Egypt Conference to focus on new opportunities

Cairo, July 30, 2017

The Euromoney Egypt Conference, being held in Cairo in September, will discuss the growing opportunities for investment and partnership in Egypt.

The conference titled 'Stability and Cohesion – Opportunities in Egypt' is the event's 22nd edition and will be held  on September 18 and 19.  

“We are delighted to be working with the Government of Egypt on an agenda that gives a comprehensive and compelling overview of Egypt’s finance and investment outlook”, said Victoria Behn, director of Middle East and Africa at Euromoney Conferences. “We are returning in September with a reinvigorated interest from our core audience of international investors and financiers to attend the conference”.

Once again, the Euromoney Egypt Conference will offer its audience of business leaders and decision makers the opportunity to exchange ideas and participate in informed, impartial and leading-edge discussions. With a tight focus on sectors and opportunities that are both vital for Egypt and attractive to international capital, the two-day event will feature panel discussions on: the investment outlook; capital markets development; privatisation; real estate; industrialisation and exports, financial inclusion and start-ups.

High-level representatives from multilateral and bilateral institutions will discuss their plans in Egypt and how private capital can partner with them.

“For the first time since 2011 international capital feels comfortable in Egypt,” said Behn. “Challenges remain but the bold resolution of the currency crisis in 2016 has led not only to an upsurge of interest from equity investors but a triumphant return of the debt markets.”

Euromoney has confirmed the participation of domestic and international speakers who will help evaluate the risks and examine the most promising opportunities in Egypt.

Confirmed keynote speakers are: Dr Sahar Nasr, Minister of Investment and International Cooperation, Egypt; Tarek Kabil, Minister of Trade and Industry, Egypt; James Harmon, chairman, Egyptian-American Enterprise Fund (EAEF); Mouayed Makhlouf, director, Middle East and North Africa, International Finance Corporation (IFC); and Benedict Oramah, president, African Export–Import Bank (Afreximbank).

More than 1,000 delegates from Egypt and abroad – most of them directly involved in the finance, investment and business of Egypt – will take part in the conference. - TradeArabia News Service
