Invest NI Announces 'Opportunities in Egypt' Event

Invest NI has announced an 'Opportunities in Egypt' event, which will explore the opportunities and highlight the support available in this "emerging import dependent market offering a multitude of export opportunities for local companies".

Egypt has the largest population and the third largest economy in the Arab World after Saudi and UAE – already two significant markets for Northern Ireland companies.

Strategically, Egypt sits at the crossroads of Africa, Asia and Europe, overlooking the Red Sea and the Mediterranean. The Suez Canal is a significant and strategic trade route, positioning Egypt as a major hub for global trade.
