Egypt is steadily becoming one of the world’s strongest emerging economies. Economic reforms, which began in 2004, have strengthened and stabilized Egypt’s economy, even in the face of the world economic crisis.
With its recently open economy and high levels of economic growth, Egypt is in the perfect position for international trade and investment opportunities.On Tuesday, November 9, 2010 the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce is hosting an elite business delegation from the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt. The delegation will consist of the leaders of some of the largest businesses in Northern Africa who are looking to make meaningful connections with Chicagoland companies. The goal of the luncheon is to discuss business and investment opportunities in both Chicago and Egypt. Attendees will learn the potential of increasing exports from the U.S., in line with President Obama’s call, by using Egypt as a trade hub to the region, as well as success stories of U.S. companies operating in Egypt.
This is a complimentary event. Don’t miss a key opportunity to get involved in emerging opportunities in Africa.
