We were delighted to attend The U.S.-Egypt Strategic Partnership: Opportunities for Commercial Engagement Luncheon Event

 

Brief

AmCham Egypt hosted its monthly luncheon meeting with keynote speaker The Honorable Jonathan Cohen Ambassador of the United States of America to Egypt addressing: “The U.S.-Egypt Strategic Partnership: Opportunities for Commercial Engagement” Ambassador Cohen highlighted the level of engagement between both countries and how the bilateral trade relationship is continuously benefiting the people and the economies of the two countries, however, there are still many opportunities for US companies in Egypt in many sectors including Energy, Information Technology, Textiles, Agriculture, Tourism and Health. From 2017 through this past November, the total US-Egyptian bilateral trade grew by over 44% to $8.2bn Ambassador Cohen noted that he will be working to create and expand business opportunities between the US and Egypt, and working with the Egyptian government to build an environment that attracts US investment and in which a strong private sector can generate jobs and deliver the economic growth that Egypt needs.
