Russia – Egypt

16 Jun , 11:00–12:15
Business Dialogue
Congress Centre, conference hall B1

For many years, Egypt has been one of Russia's key trading partners in Africa. The interest of Russian and Egyptian businesses in the implementation of joint projects is increasing. The parties attach great importance to the Russian industrial zone being created in the Suez Canal Economic Zone, which can give a new impetus to the deepening of industrial cooperation between the two countries and become an entrance gate for Russian enterprises to the markets of other countries of the African continent. What opportunities for cooperation between Russia and Egypt arise in the new economic reality? Which areas of economic and investment cooperation are the most promising? What can serve as an additional incentive for the implementation of joint projects in new areas? How do we see Russian-Egyptian economic relations by 2030?
