Egypt’s top 100 firms and 50 women award ceremony to take off today

The third edition of Amwal Al Ghad Annual Award Ceremony will take off on Monday to honour the Top 100 Companies and the Top 50 Women Performing in Egypt for the year 2017.

Under the auspices of Egyptian Prime Minister Sherif Ismail, the event will gather around 800 leaderships from government and business community in various sectors.
Minister of Investment Sahar Nasr will attend the event and deliver a speech, on behalf of Prime Minister Ismail.

Since 2015, Amwal Al Ghad Award Ceremony has been announcing a yearly ranking of the top 100 companies listed in the Egyptian stock exchange as well as the 50 most influential women in Egypt. The ranking event aims to provide the Egyptian government with robust ground support to the sustainable cooperation between the private and public sectors in consideration to the development aspects of human resources, economy, and society.

The ranking is being conducted in accordance with financial and economic standards set by high-profile specialists and experts.

As for this year’s 50 women winners, they are set to join Egypt’s Top 50 Women Forum, whose total number of members will reach 153 with active roles in the government and business community.

The forum launched in late 2017 its Women Leadership Development Mentorship programme, in cooperation with the National Council for Women (NCW) and Egypt’s Central Bank. The programme aimed to develop women holistically for the future professionally, individually, and spiritually to excel in all political, economic, and social fields.
