    It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in our forthcoming trade mission to Egypt, organised in partnership with the Department for International Trade (DIT), the British-Egyptian Business Association (BEBA), and Egyptian British Business Council (EBBC). 

    The Government of Egypt recognizes the UK as a key player in several sectors, with an emphasis on collaboration in the transportation & healthcare sectors.


    A huge effort is underway in Egypt to upgrade public and private healthcare facilities. The government is looking for investment in medical manufacturing facilities, particularly in the new Suez Canal Economic Zone.

    With a growing population already over 100 million to accommodate, Egypt’s Ministry of Housing is building new cities that require hospitals and medical centres. There is a further need for high-quality medical furniture, appliances, surgical equipment, disposables and pharmaceuticals.


    Egypt’s Ministry of Transport has significant development targets in three main areas; roads & bridges, railways & metro, and maritime (ports, dry ports and river ports). The Ministry is actively looking for private sector involvement in the construction of a new road network (2000km), the renewal of 1200km rail tracks, the purchase and local manufacturing of 1300 rail passenger coaches, the maintenance of 150 rail stations, and replacement & renewal of rolling stocks (priority). The metro system is expanding from 77km currently to 300km by 2024, a total of 6 lines will service the Greater Cairo area.

    The Ministry’s targets in the maritime sector are to construct a total of 6 ports on the Mediterranean and 9 ports on the Red Sea. There are considerable opportunities in the construction of terminals and logistics areas, as well as in the supply of marine tractors. For the first time in Egypt, four new dry ports and logistics centres are tendered via the EBRD on a PPP basis. In short, a great number of pipeline opportunities for UK companies to get involved in.

    Our three-day programme includes meetings with senior officials in government, site visits and B2B opportunities. Join us, and explore the vast trade and investment opportunities for UK business in Egypt. Download our programme here
