A trade delegation from Egypt delivered an exciting prospectus of opportunities to Liverpool businesses at a briefing held on Monday 22nd January at the offices of Hill Dickinson, in Liverpool City Centre.

The event was organized by the Department for International Trade and supported by the Liverpool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce and was designed to develop and inform the trading opportunities and connections between the Liverpool City Region and Egypt, particularly the port city of Alexandria.

A dozen businesses joined the briefing, chaired by Wendy Freeman, HM Consul General at the British Consulate Alexandria, Mr Mustafa El Deeb, Advisor  on Maritime transport and logistics to the Egyptian Minister of Transport, Admiral Medhat Attia, Chairman of the Port Authority for Alexandria

Guests were presented with a market economic overview of Egypt by Iman Elsherif, Secretary-General of the Egyptian-British Chamber of Commerce before subsequent briefings were delivered by Admiral Mustafa El Deeb, Advisor to Egypt’s Minister of transport for Ports, and Rear Admiral Medhat Attia.

Attendees were presented with advice and guidance about local customs arrangements and were informed about the substantial opportunities for companies in oil, gas and petrochemical industries, agriculture, tourism, healthcare, civil engineering and maritime development.

After the briefing, the delegation continued to the Town Hall to meet with the Lord Mayor and city representatives  and officials to discuss a potential friendship arrangement between Alexandria and Liverpool and the potential participation of an Egyptian delegation at the International Business Festival in the summer of 2018. A subsequent tour of Peel Ports concluded the delegation visit on 23 January.

Businesses with an interest in trading with Egypt in the Transport and Healthcare sectors are encouraged to attend a three day trade mission on 11 – 14 February, at which participants will meet key industrial and political figures in Cairo and Alexandria. The trade mission may be eligible for funding through the “ Enhancing SMES International trade Performance” program delivered by DIT   or ‘New Markets’ program delivered by the Chamber of Commerce to eligible companies in the Liverpool City Region.
