World Trade at 1 – Doing Business in Egypt

September 12 @ 12:00 am - 11:55 pm

Location: International Trade Centre, Hull

This WT@1 market briefing will provide an update on the latest economic developments in Egypt and the wealth of opportunities open to UK companies wishing to do business with Egypt.

  • Egypt was the UK’s 42nd largest export market for goods and 55th largest export market for services with exports valued at £1 billion.  In the last few years, the value of exports has almost doubled, comparing with 2013, reaching almost £2 billion per annum.
  • The newly-expanded Suez Canal is strategically located on the main trade route between Europe and Asia, with more than 8% of global trade passing through every year.
  • There is an abundance of opportunities for UK business to get involved in sectors such as ENERGY, RENEWABLES, CONSTRUCTION & INFRASTRUCTURE, RETAIL, TRANSPORT and many others.

The event will also examine the various aspects of trading with Egypt, including possible challenges businesses may face, including the financial perspective presented by an expert in this field.

Our speakers will be available for consultation over lunch, when you will also have the opportunity to network with fellow international traders. We are also offering a limited number of 10 minute 121s with each speaker after lunch.

Who should attend:

This event is exclusively for exporters and importers who are actively looking to do business in Egypt.
