Prime Minister Hisham Qandil is to open the Second Investment Conference on investment in public-private partnerships (PPP) on Sunday 24/03/2013.
“Despite the critical situation in Egypt, the government is keen on holding the conference to show its backing to the private sector,” Minister of Finance Al-Morsi Hegazy said.
Through this conference, the government drives home a message to the international business community that it is keen on luring foreign investments.
The minister believes the conference will help assuage fears and rebuild confidence in Egypt’s investment climate.
The conference is expected to be attended by delegations from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the European Union (EU), the World Bank (WB), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) and the African Development Bank (ADB).
