LONDON, September 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Exporta Group, the market leading independent information provider for the financial services industry, is delighted to be returning to Cairo for the 5th Annual Egypt Trade & Export Finance Conference, taking place at the Four Seasons Nile Plaza, located within the city's thriving business district, on October 10, 2012.
Deliberations over the course of the day will focus on a range of crucial issues, from macroeconomic perspectives on the Eurozone and growth in Asia, to changing corporate financing priorities across a range of sectors, new models in Islamic finance, changing export finance options and best practice across various financing techniques.
"Having gone through a period of enormous change, the Egyptian market has much to look forward to," says Paul Greetham, producer of the conference. "Predictions for the broader MENA region see Egypt at the very top of the list in terms of growth, with forecasts of an increase in excess of 160% over the next 16 years."
During the event, huge emphasis will be placed on the dynamic between trading companies and the banks tasked with financing them. "Egypt has invariably had many problems to overcome in recent times, but despite this, trade and commerce has remained a constant," says Peter Gubbins, Managing Director of Exporta. "Now, with the situation being relatively more stable, there is the opportunity for those committed to the country to meet with all of the principle decisions makers under one roof."
The conference benefits from the support of some of the region's leading institutions, including Afreximbank and the Islamic Development Bank, with HSBC enjoying the role of Platinum Sponsor. "HSBC Bank Egypt is delighted to once again be part of the Annual Egypt Trade & Export Finance Conference," says Halla Sakr, Deputy CEO and Head of Commercial Banking and Strategy, HSBC Bank Egypt. "Egypt remains a strategic market in the MENA region with an array of opportunities, and we believe we have a crucial role to play in supporting trade in Egypt through our international network."
The conference will conclude with a special evening networking reception, allowing attendees to continue their discussions long into the evening, with stunning views offered overlooking the Nile.
