BEBA: Egypt’s new door-knock mission to UK due on Nov. 27

The British Egyptian Business Association (BEBA) is set to send its annual door-knock mission to the UK on November 27, its Egyptian head Khaled Nosseir said on Monday.

A mission of around 40 Egyptian financial institutions and firms, will be scouting for new grounds of bilateral economic cooperation and promoting the available investment opportunities in Egypt, Nosseir explained.

About the three-day visit, BEBA’s chairman said the mission would first head to Manchester to explore investment opportunities in oil and gas sectors, then to Liverpool to meet with the chamber of commerce officials and discuss cooperation in transport sector. It will finally head to London to discuss cooperation in various sectors, such as educational and ongoing giant national projects in Egypt.

The mission participants will also meet with UK Ambassador to Cairo, Sir Geoffrey Adams in London, he added.

The time of the new mission is perfect as the UK will soon leave the EU and Egypt seeks to be a plausible alternative source to meet British market needs of commodities and goods, Nosseir said.
