    It is our pleasure to invite you to our 2nd Workshop on 'Trade with Egypt; Export Documentation, Trade Finance & Customs Routines,' taking place on Tuesday 29 May 2018 from 9 am to 1pm at Rooks Rider Solicitors LLP, Challoner House, 19 Clerkenwell Close, London EC1R 0RR.  This is followed by a networking lunch from 1pm to 2pm

    Egypt is one of the largest markets in the MENA region, with a population of 95 million and growing. Its free trade agreement with the EU means that the country will have continued preferential access to the EU Single Market even after Brexit, and that it remains an important regional trade hub. 

    The UK trade volume with Egypt valued at close to £2 billion per year in the last few years. Following the implementation of much needed economic reforms Egypt’s external sector is stabilizing. New documentation requirements were introduced by the Egyptian government in 2015/16 to support these reforms. 

    The objective of this workshop is to examine the various aspects of international trade documentation, and specific requirements for export to the Egyptian market. The workshop consists of three sessions; in the sessions, we will discuss how to prepare the content of your trade documents, payment methods & documentation, and finally customs routines. 

    The sessions are supported by Rooks Rider Solicitors LLP, Intertek, the Surrey Chambers of Commerce, and UK Export Finance.
