With its rapidly increasing population, advantageous geographic position and growing economy, Egypt is a market with a lot to offer.

Its strategic location linking the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Asia make it an ideal global business hub and its free trade agreements with the EU, Africa and the Gulf give favoured access to regional growth markets in the Middle East and Africa. The new bilateral trade agreement between the UK and Egypt - which will replace the EU agreement following EU exit - is in its final stage of negotiations.

GDP growth was 5.6% last year and is predicted at 3.1% this year – which is still significant growth despite the COVID-19 pandemic. There are opportunities for UK firms in many sectors including:

  • tourism 
  • construction
  • oil and gas
  • automotive
  • chemicals
  • consumer electronics
  • steel
  • clothing and textiles
  • banking and insurance
  • ICT
  • infrastructure
  • healthcare
  • education

Join this webinar co-hosted by DIT Midlands Engine and the Egyptian-British Chamber of Commerce to explore what Egypt has to offer for your business.
