For more than 22 years Euromoney has provided a comprehensive update on Egypt’s financial markets. In 2018 Euromoney Conferences will turn the focus of its annual event back to the economy, under the theme of Resilience and Agility. In a world of constant disruptions, is the financial sector agile and prepared to adapt? Is the economy sufficiently resilient? And what are Egypt’s investment strategies moving forward?

We are honoured to once again have the support of the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation and to welcome Dr Sahar Nasr to open the conference and address these key issues.We will ask Dr Mohamed Maait, the Minister of Finance, if the economy has turned a corner, giving an update on the budget and prospects for growth.

Dr Amr Talaat, Minister of Communication and Information Technology will discuss how Egypt is moving towards a digital economy and how this digitisation is evolving. One of the most important components of a forward looking, agile country is good education. We will talk to Professor Tarek Shawki, the Minister of Education, on his ambitious plans to transform the sector and create a workforce fit for the 21st century.

Following on from insightful Ministerial interviews the theme will be explored throughout the two days with panel discussions, presentations and special sessions delivered by experts in their fields.

International Speakers already confirmed include:

  • Executive Director, MENA of ConsenSys, Lina Hediah
  • Head of Middle East and North Africa of Eurasia Group, Ayham Kamel
  • Program Leader at the World Bank, Ashish Khanna
