The three-day event was called for by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi in early September when he urged the government to organise an economic conference to discuss the present economic conditions to boost all sectors of the domestic economy.

According to cabinet spokesperson Nader Saad, the conference will include the announcement of several incentives for the industrial sector and exporters as well as a number of government initiatives to stimulate economic performance.

The spokesperson said that the agenda of the conference will focus on three main tracks: macroeconomic policies, private sector empowerment and creating a business-friendly environment, and formulating a roadmap for the priority sectors in the government’s work program.

Saad said the discussion of the roadmap will witness a number of interactive sessions that will discuss the visions and ideas of experts on what policies are required to achieve national goals in several priority sectors in the Egyptian economy and the measures required to overcome the challenges facing those sectors.

The discussions on the second day of the conference will include tackling the role of the Sovereign Fund of Egypt (TSFE) and the State Ownership Document.

The closing session will review the prominent conclusions and recommendations reached during the conference concerning the policies required to face the current challenges in the Egyptian economy.

The conference will also have roundtable sessions with the participation of government representatives, including the prime minister, as well as intellectuals, economists and representatives of political parties.

The cabinet said that 92 officials from the government will attend the conference, including ministers, in addition to 68 MPs, 72 economy professors, 39 economists, 22 heads of commerce chambers and unions, 133 representatives of local and foreign companies, 22 representatives of NGOs, 11 party leaders, 47 ambassadors, 27 businessmen’s associations and 37 members of the National Dialogue.
