The Arab British Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Egyptian-British Chamber of Commerce and the Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt, with the presence of His Excellency Mr Tarek Adel, Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt in London, is hosting this unique event to explore the many opportunities available in Egypt. 

With a population approaching close to 100 million and a location that provides excellent access to major foreign markets, Egypt has immense potential. The successful adoption of a bold reform programme backed by the IMF is starting to show results. GDP growth has accelerated from 4.2% in 2016/17 to reach 5.3% in 2017/18 (on IMF figures).

Registration is now open for the event, which will be held at the Arab British Chamber’s premises on Thursday 14 March 2019 (9.30am registration).  The event (from 10am -12pm) will consist of presentations, and a panel discussion. This is followed by a canapé networking reception until 1pm. 

Speakers at Opportunities in Egypt will highlight the many new and emerging opportunities for investors, exporters and service providers in this strategic market.


Speakers include:  

- His Excellency Mr Tarek Adel, Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt in London

- Rt Hon Sir Jeffrey M. Donaldson MP, Trade Envoy to Egypt

- Mr Ian Gray OBE, Chairman of the Egyptian-British Chamber of Commerce

- The Rt Hon. Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean, Chairman of the Arab British Chamber of Commerce and the British Egyptian Society
