Marking its fifth anniversary, Business Forward, the knowledge portal of the School of Business at The American University in Cairo (AUC), held its annual event at AUC Tahrir campus. Under the theme “Egypt’s Economy 2023: Structural Reform Amidst a Volatile Global Outlook”, the event brought forward-looking academic, professional and industry perspectives on pressing topics, including currency devaluation, public debt and private sector challenges, in light of the heightened economic shockwaves resulting from the Russia-Ukraine war.


The event took stock of the past year’s economic happenings and generated advice on public policies and directions, providing a platform of exchange between industry leaders, economists, policymakers and academia.


“This is an exceptional year for the School marking 75 years of service to Egypt and the region, having started offering our first economics program in 1947,” said AUC School of Business Dean Sherif Kamel. “Throughout the five-year journey of Business Forward, it has been keeping a close eye on the development of Egypt’s business environment and the economy at large in light of the changes happening worldwide,” he added.


The event also included the launch of a new edition of Business Forward’s flagship digital campaign, “I Moved My Business Forward”. This year the campaign focuses on stories about family businesses, given their importance in the economy and significant contribution to production and employment. The campaign’s objective is to share the latest knowledge and best practices in promoting the thriving of family businesses across generations, engaging companies of all sizes and subject matter experts.
