Why Egypt?

With its rapidly increasing population, advantageous geographic position and growing economy, Egypt is a market with a lot to offer. A number of UK companies are already doing business there, including BP, Shell, Vodafone, HSBC, GSK, AstraZeneca and Unilever.

As a result of economic reform in Egypt, foreign reserves have increased, unemployment has declined and there has been significant investment in infrastructure. Egypt’s government is planning a series of large-scale infrastructure projects, with plans to build new cities, improve transport infrastructure and develop better wastewater treatment and water desalination plants.
