Egypt, a market at the nexus of the African, Arab and Mediterranean centres has emerged as one of the world’s fastest growing economies in recent years.
With a large domestic market and consumer base, strong GDP growth, strategic location and large and educated work force, Egypt has become one of the most promising markets in which to do business.

It is a major oil and gas producer, in addition to other growing sectors like:
o agriculture
o manufacturing
o tourism

The Government has also invested strongly in infrastructure development, with road, rail and ports being prioritized. In addition, the country is undergoing a major construction boom, with several new cities being built, and providing new business opportunities.

"Egypt is poised to be at the forefront of growth for emerging economies."

The consumer base in Egypt – with a population of 102 million – is a major attraction for businesses looking to expand into a market that has the potential for economies of scale and Invest NI is poised to assist companies from Northern Ireland to understand and access this growing and attractive market.
