What we’re tracking this week

Furniture expo Le Marché is set to begin on Thursday 11 May and run until 14 May.

Prime Minister Sherif Ismail is reportedly heading to Britain on Wednesday along with a group of ministers for a two-day visit. Look for talks on investment and scrapping the remaining travel warnings on Egypt to feature high on Cairo’s wish list.

The executive regulations to the Industrial Permits Act are expected as early as this week. President Abdel Fattah El Sisi signed off on act yesterday, Al Borsa reports. According to Article 5 of the legislation, the Trade and Industry Minister is required to issue the executive regulations for the law within three months. The law was published in the Official Gazette last week after having passed the House of Representatives last month.
