Given the change in government experienced in 2011 and expected handover to a civilian administration in 2012, several trade provisions may be subject to change and monitoring political developments is strongly advised. Egypt’s large size and market complexity raises the necessity to secure a local partner with detailed knowledge regarding the market structure and major players. Moreover, prices of commodities in the local market are subject to change, and may differ substantially from levels elsewhere in the world. Keeping abreast of local policy and market-impacting changes is of paramount importance to exporters.
