Egypt will host a high-level forum promoting trade and investment in Africa this December, the country’s investment and international cooperation ministry and COMESA’s regional investment agency announced.

The Africa 2017 forum, which will be held under the patronage of President El-Sisi, will be held from 7-9 December in Sharm El-Sheikh and will bring together high-level delegations of leaders in business and policy from across the continent, including heads of state and major CEOs.

It will kick off with a Young Entrepreneurs Day, that will bring together emerging entrepreneurs with more established ones, in addition to mentors, start-up hubs, angel investors and venture capital firms, to share ideas, network and help drive further the business ideas of tomorrow.

The event has partnered with incubators, entrepreneurship programmes and VC funds.

As part of the forum, Egypt will be showcasing its flagship mega-projects, including the construction of a new capital city 45km outside of Cairo, and a number of industrial and special economic zone projects along the Suez Canal, among others.

Over 1,000 delegates are expected, according to the ministry.

Egypt is a member of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).
