The Future of Egypt’s Economy

Surrounded by political uncertainty, the Egyptian economy has experienced a sharp decline over the past two years. While the Egyptian government struggles to maintain macroeconomic stability and international confidence, it faces significant challenges; unemployment continues to increase, and the country’s key sectors have seen a sluggish recovery.

Partners for a New Beginning is organizing a roundtable discussion to address economic challenges as well as opportunities to overcome them. Panelists will address the role of the private sector and international community in driving economic growth in Egypt.

This event has reached maximum capacity.

Opening remarks:

  • Walter Isaacson, President & CEO, the Aspen Institute


  • Heidi Crebo-Rediker, Chief Economist, US Department of State
  • Hisham Fahmy, CEO, AmCham Egypt
  • Amb. Daniel Kurtzer, Professor, Princeton University; former US Ambassador to Egypt
