Cairo will host the investment international conference Euromoney on Sept 18-19, gathering a wide range of investors, policymakers, and officials to discuss recent businesses issues and investment opportunities in Egypt, Invest-Gate reports.

“A determined course for the economy appears to have been set,” says Victoria Behn, Director for the Middle East and Africa at Euromoney Conferences. “But it won’t all be plain sailing. Egypt urgently needs capital to flow into securities and real assets to support its developmental challenges. Now is the time for investors to get to grips with the risks and opportunities.”

With over 1000 delegates gathering in Cairo, the conference will center around how Egypt will overcome its challenges and put international capital to work in a way that will act as a shot in the arm for the economy, giving investors decent returns.

Internationally-respected speakers and a line-up of senior financial markets professionals, economists and government ministers will discuss, among other topics: Egypt’s investment outlook, the impact of reform, sharing the impacts of investment, the prospects for equity and debt markets, IPOs, and the increasing role of the private sector, real-estate investment, start-ups and venture capital, and the future for international trade.
