What we’re tracking on 9 December 2018

It’s shaping up to be another busy week as 2018 roars to a close and as those among us saddled with strategy and budget responsibility scramble to finish up their work.

News triggers this week:

  • The Africa 2018 conference ends today. The gathering was the source of plenty of announcements this past weekend; expect a light trickle of news today.
  • The FRA will hear Beltone Financial’s appeal on Monday against a six-month suspension handed to the firm’s investment banking arm.
  • The House is back from recess this morning. The general assembly had been on break the past week and a half, though committees had continued to meet.
  • Elsewedy Electric and Arab Contractors will ink this week the final contracts for a USD 3 bn, 2.1 GW hydroelectric dam in Tanzania
  • Tourism will be in the spotlight on Thursday when Rania El Mashat unveils her ministry’s reform for the industry program at an AmCham gathering

Things you can go to this week:

  • Startup gathering RiseUp draws to a close today at the Greek Campus in downtown Cairo.
  • The Food Africa Expo continues through Tuesday.
  • EFG Hermes’ annual Egypt Day Summit runs Tuesday through Thursday. We look forward to seeing many of you at Tuesday’s CEO Dinner

There are plenty of other conference and events taking place this week and into next. We have more in our Calendar section on the website this morning.
