05 December, 2017
It is our pleasure to invite you to the High Level Agricultural Investment Forum “Promoting Sustainable Investment in Egypt’s Food Security” – organized by FAO under the auspices of the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation, and Ministry of Supply and Internal Trade - to be held on the 5th December 2017 at the Carlton Ritz Hotel in Cairo, Egypt.
Bringing together private sector companies, producer associations, policy-makers, IFIs, local banks and other investors, the Forum aims to promote private investment in Egypt’s agricultural and food sector. Public-private discussions will focus on ways to foster an enabling environment for sustainable agricultural investment in the country and on making Egypt’s agrifood systems more efficient and inclusive, both in terms of import supply chains and subsectors with a high export potential.
The Forum is a unique occasion for the private and public sectors to share lessons learned and best practices, identify investment priorities and coordinate activities in strategic areas.
The Forum will include interactive panel sessions on selected value chains (grain, sugar, horticulture and poultry), as well as networking sessions and a wrap up discussion. Discussions will build on the analytical work already conducted in the different agricultural sub-sectors. This will present a unique occasion to identify investment constraints and opportunities in key value chains and priority areas in Egypt.
More than 200 high-level participants, including policy-makers, ministers, CEOs of leading companies in Egypt and abroad, and senior managers from major International Financial Institutions are expected to attend, ensuring lively and productive debates.
Please save the date 5 December 2017 for this high level engagement in Egypt’s agricultural and food sector.
We hope that you will be able to participate in this high level engagement in Egypt’s agricultural and food sector. More information can be found in the draft agenda and on the Forum’s portal.
