On the horizon

The African Development Bank will vote on issuing the USD 500 mn second tranche of USD 1.5 bn loan on 12 December, while the board of the World Bank Group will decide on the USD 1 bn second tranche of its USD 3 bn loan on 22 December. International Cooperation Minister Sahar Nasr confirmed to reporters that AfDB has already approved the tranche, Al Shorouk reported.

Conferences next week include:

  • The Projex Africa and MS Marmomacc + Samoter Africa takes place at the Cairo International Convention Centre on 10-13 December. (Yes, the name is meaningless to us, too. But apparently it’s a trio of high-profile conferences in the construction industry.)
  • The Middle East Fire, Security & Safety Exhibition and Conference (MEFSEC) also happens at the Cairo International Convention Centre, Cairo on 11-13 December.
  • The Amwal Al Ghad’s top 50 most influential women in Egypt women forum, Four Seasons Nile Plaza Hotel, Cairo on 13 December.

The Roadmap to Developing Globally Competitive Egyptian Export Champions takes place on 19 December at the Four Seasons Nile Place, 8:30am-12:30pm. It’s the first in a series on Egyptian exports and is hosted by Logic Management Consulting in association with the Federation of Egyptian Enterprises and the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
