Egypt’s prime minister Hesham Kandil will open the 2012 Euromoney conference on Tuesday it was confirmed Monday.
The Prime Minister’s address will focus on the prospects for local and international investment, resolution of some of the current issues facing Egypt’s economy and how his administration is shaping its integrated economic policy.
Also taking part in the conference will be Finance Minister Momtaz Al-Saeed, investment minister Osama Saleh and CIT Minister Hany Mahmoud.
The goal of the conference is to canvas the opinions of leading investors on both the challenges and priorities for economic reform in Egypt. The proceedings of the conference will be streamed live on YouTube which will enable ordinary Egyptians to have their say too. The conference findings will be presented to policy-makers and the media soon after the event takes place.
We’re under no illusions about the severity of the economic problems facing Egypt in the short term, said Richard Banks, euromoney’s regional director, but we intend that the experience, creativity and innovation of our participants can put forward some meaningful and actionable plans. Egypt’s economy needs to start moving and we’re committed to doing what we can to help.
