Capitalising on Egypt’s Mega-Projects and GCC Investments

Egypt is witnessing significant political stability as the government is implementing economic and legislative reforms aimed at boosting the economy, halving the budget deficit within seven years, and attracting investment. Ambitious projects such as the Suez Canal Regional Development Project, the development of the North Coast and the Golden Triangle project in Upper Egypt, have all served to draw in domestic and international investment and finance more development projects*.

Against this improving economic backdrop we are delighted to once again bring you the Cityscape Egypt Business Breakfast, on 10 February 2015 at the Four Seasons at Nile Plaza to facilitate professional networking and provide a platform to gain valuable market insight from Egypt’s real estate leaders.

Take part in this valuable discussion focusing on:

  • Changes and reform to investment law
  • Pending issues with international companies
  • Prospects in Egypt’s mega-projects
  • Where are GCC investments going?
  • How can local developers benefit from the surge in investments?
