This month, the Egyptian Minister of Finance H.E. Dr. Ahmed Galal and the Minister of Tourism H.E. Hisham Zazou will provide insight into their plans to kick start Egypt’s financial and tourism sectors at the 2013 Euromoney Conference.
Will what they say match up to international sentiments from the likes of Cees Ursem, Country Manager, Air France KLM; Mohamed El-Mahdi, Chairman and Managing Director of Siemens SAE; Suresh Narayanan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Nestlé Egypt: or Rob Bennett, Chairman and Managing Director of TAQA Arabia Gas Group?
“Despite the road being long, there does appear to be a shared vision of where both the government and direct foreign investors want to be – and that is – moving forward,” said Richard Banks, Regional Director, Euromoney Conference. “The emphasis from both policymakers and business heads will be on the nuts and bolts of getting finance and industry moving again as well as the incremental changes that are possible in the current climate.”
Other confirmed speakers include: Hisham El-Khazindar, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Citadel Capital (CCAP.CA); James Moran, Ambassador of the European Union to Egypt; Tom Everett-Heath, Managing Director, Kroll; and Hanan Morsy, Senior Regional Economist, Southern and Eastern Mediterranean, EBRD.
The conference is supported by lead sponsors Commercial International Bank, Citadel Capital, National Bank of Egypt; co-sponsors AlexBank, Emaar; El Taamir Mortgage Company – Al Oula; SODIC; internet sponsor Google; and supporting organization AIB.
