The 22nd Euromoney Egypt Con­fer­ence in Cairo on 18-19 Septem­ber will ad­dress a num­ber of ma­jor chal­lenges fac­ing the pri­vate sec­tor’s eco­nomic growth in Egypt and ob­struct­ing for­eign in­vest­ment in Egyp­tian as­sets.

The Egyp­tian govern­ment has re­cently adopted a se­ries of vi­tal eco­nomic re­forms to im­prove the in­vest­ment at­mos­phere and in­crease eco­nomic ef­fi­ciency in the coun­try. How­ever, the lat­est re­ports from the Euro­pean Bank for Re­con­struc­tion and De­vel­op­ment (EBRD) in­di­cated that mas­sive pop­u­la­tion growth and high unem­ploy­ment rate are the big­gest chal­lenges to eco­nomic growth in the coun­try, which re­quires the de­vel­op­ment of the pri­vate sec­tor to over­come those ob­sta­cles.

Euromoney Egypt 2017 will be at­tended by Char­lie Cor­bett. Ed­i­to­rial Di­rec­tor of Euromoney Con­fer­ences; Hanan Morsi, Re­gional Chief Econ­o­mist at the EBRD; and Mo­hamed Talaat, Part­ner at Baker and McKen­zie (Helmy, Hamza & Part­ners).

The con­fer­ence will in­clude a se­ries of live meet­ings and panel dis­cus­sions high­light­ing the in­vest­ment en­vi­ron­ment in Egypt, the cap­i­tal mar­kets, the Egyp­tian real es­tate de­vel­op­ment and others.

A large num­ber of ex­perts from fi­nan­cial mar­kets, econ­o­mists, govern­ment of­fi­cials and bankers con­firmed their at­ten­dance at the Euromoney Egypt con­fer­ence this year to ex­change views on the var­i­ous eco­nomic is­sues ad­dressed by the con­fer­ence.

For the first time at the Euromoney Egypt Con­fer­ence, the reg­is­tered del­e­ga­tions will be able to use the Euromoney Con­fer­ence ap­pli­ca­tion, in or­der to make the most of the in­for­ma­tion and dis­cus­sions of the con­fer­ence and to in­crease the in­ter­ac­tion of par­tic­i­pants.
