What we’re tracking this week and beyond

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is set to inaugurate the three 14.4 GW Siemens combined-cycle power plants in Burullus, Beni Suef and the new capital next Tuesday, according to government sources.

El Sisi might also be visiting Beijing in September to attend the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation.

The sixth National Youth Conference is set to be taking place by the end of this month. Organizers have opened the floor for the public to submit questions for El Sisi to respond to during the conference through the “Ask the President” initiative. The upcoming edition will be directed towards university students, but it remains unclear where it will be held.

Our friends at the American Chambers of Commerce (AmCham) will be hosting Finance Minister Mohamed Maait for its monthly luncheon on Monday, 30 July. Maait, who will address AmCham for the first time as Finance Minister, will discuss Egypt’s financial reform agenda. You can register for the event here.
