A high-level Egyptian delegation is set to participate in a conference organised by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), in cooperation with the Arab Monetary Fund (AMF), the Arab Fund for Social and Economic Development (AFESD) and the government of Morocco in Marrakesh on Monday.
The delegation is headed by Egypt's Finance Minister Amr El-Garhy and the Governor of the Central Bank Tarek Amer.
The conference, held under the title of "Opportunity for All-Promoting Growth, Jobs, and Inclusiveness in the Arab World" is due to kick-off in Marrakesh on Monday to discuss ways of promoting inclusive economic growth and job creation in the Arab world.
The two-day conference gathers policymakers, executives, academics, youth, media and civil society representatives to exchange expertise on creating jobs by exploiting new sources and sectors of growth.
The conference will also discuss scaling up opportunities for women and youth by promoting entrepreneurship and innovation; embracing transparency and technology to unlock the region’s potential; and designing government policies that act as enablers of higher and more inclusive growth.
