Euromoney will mark its 20th anniversary in Egypt this year. It will return to Cairo on the 7 and 8 September for its annual gathering of finance and investment professionals. H.E. Mr. Hany Kadry Dimian, Minister of Finance, will open the conference giving an overview of the macro-economic environment, growth, unemployment, inflation and the subsidy programme.

“Egypt is very important to Euromoney, and Euromoney is important to Egypt. We’ve been telling the Egyptian story for 20 years and we look forward to doing so for another twenty” said Richard Banks, Consulting Editor and Conference Chairman for Euromoney Conferences.

Euromoney brings focus, insight and independence to the debates about Egypt’s economic and investment future. As the oldest and most influential conference in the Egyptian financial calendar, the Euromoney Egypt Conference will explain the dynamics of Egypt’s changing political, economic, financial, regulatory and monetary systems to the international markets.

The two-day event will also discuss the opportunities available for investment and partnership. The conference will look at the current mega projects taking place in Egypt, with workshops discussing the Suez Canal Corridor, Energy & Electricity, Real Estate, Construction & Housing, Credit Markets, Private and Public Equity and SMEs in the new Egypt. More than 1000 delegates will attend from all over the world – most involved directly with investment into Egypt.

“We’re about driving capital toward productive investments in Egypt,” added Banks, “there are many new opportunities here in Egypt which require the rigour, focus and technology which only global capital can bring”.

Other confirmed speakers include: H.E Mr Ashraf Salman, Minister of Investment, Mr Atter Hannoura, Director, PPP Central Unit, Ministry of Finance, Dr John Sfakianakis, Director for Middle East, Ashmore Group, Mr Mohieddine Kronfol, Chief Investment Officer, Global Sukuk and MENA Fixed Income, Franklin Templeton Investments, Dr Mohamed Omran, Chairman of the Egyptian Exchange and Mr Sherif Samy, Chairman of the Egyptian Financial Supervisory Authority.
