Doing business in Egypt

Do you want to export to Egypt? Is your core business in the construction, energy or environment sector? At 10:00 am on 16 September, our export team and our network abroad will share their knowledge about the Egyptian market during a webinar titled “Doing business in Egypt, what comes next?”!

Before the coronavirus pandemic, Egypt had one of the fastest growing emerging markets. In fact, since 2016, the country has undergone a major economic reform programme which has considerably bolstered the resilience of its economy. Thus, Egypt is among the rare countries for which the IMF still predicts a positive growth rate in 2020, despite the major challenges it faces.

Since our commercial mission planned for Cairo has been cancelled due to the coronavirus, we are proposing an online alternative.

A webinar before B2B meetings

What impact has the coronavirus crisis had on the Egyptian economy? What are the medium- and long-term opportunities? What are the elements to focus on when doing business in Egypt? These are just some of the questions that will be answered during our webinar titled “Doing business in Egypt, what comes next?”.
