Business Environment

While Egypt’s economy was significantly weakened due to the 2011 revolution, recent market activity and observations suggest that the political and economic environments are gradually showing positive trends and that a sustainable recovery has taken hold. Egypt’s population is the largest in North Africa and the Arab world. With a highly diversified economy, projects exist in key sectors such as Transportation, Power, Water, Infrastructure, as well as the Extractive sector.
