The Chairman of the Egyptian British Business Council and the Egyptian British Chamber of Commerce have the pleasure to invite you to join us at a Breakfast Briefing at 0815 for 0830 on Wednesday, 25 May 2016, at the RAF Club (128 Piccadilly, London W1J 7PY).  In so doing, you will have a privileged opportunity to hear an authoritative business briefing by Dr Ahmed Darwish, Chairman of the General Authority for Suez Canal Economic Zone, and to ask him questions.  

Dr Darwish, who will be paying an official visit to the United Kingdom, has had a distinguished academic, professional and political career, including Ministerial experience in Egypt (see http://www.amdarwish.com/ for details), and the Suez Canal Zone offers a package of strategic, regulatory and economic incentives for the investor (see http://www.sczone.eg/English/why-sc-zone/Pages/competitive-edge.aspx) in a special economic zone adjacent to the domestic Egyptian market of 90 million people and straddling the major trade route linking Europe and Asia.  

 Dr Darwish's briefing will be of particular interest to companies in the infrastructure, engineering and IT sectors as well as those involved in financial, legal and professional services.  If you would like to attend, please register online (below) or RSVP with Karin Van Wesep at karin@theebcc.com by Friday, 20 May. 

Dr Darwish has a full programme and will start speaking at 08.30: the meeting will end at 10.00 when he has to leave for his next appointment.  Coffee, tea and croissants will be served from 08.15.
