Etisalat and Bassita clean up Nile, ALC Weshahi & Partners cover Egypt for Chambers, Karim Youssef and Mohamed Abdelwahab make Who’s Who
The good people at Etisalat Egypt partnered with Bassita and its VeryNile initiative to clean up a stretch of the river Nile in the Greater Cairo Area’s Qursaya. Our friends Hazem Metwally (CEO at Etisalat, pictured above) and Khaled Hegazy (chief corporate affairs officer) joined more than 20 staffers from the mobile network operator and VeryNile for a cleanup day. They shipped the non-organic waste to a recycling center where women on the island of Qursaya turn it into reusable products, generating revenue through a marketplace provided by VeryNile. You can check out Hazem’s thoughts on the day here.
Our friends at ALC Alieldean Weshahi & Partners are featured authors of the Egypt sections of Chambers’ 2021 Doing Business guide. Bahaa Alieldean covers Opportunity for practitioners and investors alike in Egypt’s compelling debt capital market (thank you, sir, for the shout-out to Enterprise), while Amr Namek covers law and practice.
And last, but not least: Hats off to Karim Youssef at Youssef & Partners Attorneys and Mohamed Abdelwahab at Zulficar & Partners, who are the only two Egyptian attorneys to make the Who’s who legal global thought leaders: Arbitration 2021. Hit the links for interviews with each of them.
