Gateway to Egypt with Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce

As part of our Regional Event Series ‘Gateway to Egypt’, the Chamber partners with the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce to talk about opportunities for their members in the Egyptian market.

This International Trade Forum market briefing will provide you with an update on the latest economic developments in Egypt, as well as showcasing the wealth of opportunities open to UK companies wishing to do business with Egypt.

The event will also examine the various aspects of trading with Egypt, including possible challenges businesses may face, including the financial perspective presented by an expert in this field. Providing delegates with an opportunity to raise questions or issues with the market experts as well as network with like-minded companies.

Since 2014, significant improvements were made to Egypt’s economy via an IMF-supported economic reform package which resulted in a 28% growth in trade volume (goods) with the UK by 2019, when the programme concluded successfully. Coincidentally, the country was also named one of the fastest growing economies in 2019 and GDP growth is expected to remain positive in 2020/21 despite the effects of Covid-19 on the global economy.

Egypt’s government is still actively working on ways to continuously improve private sector involvement. Major infrastructure projects such as new cities, public transport networks, retail and renewable energy projects, as well as a focus on the upgrade of social services such as healthcare and education means that there are major opportunities for UK companies in a variety of sectors.
