09:00 Start of the workshop

Join us at this workshop to examine international best practices in establishing and developing Special Economic Zones (SEZs). Run by the former senior vice president of Economic Zones World, Anwar Mohamed, this workshop will inform participants about how best to establish and develop SEZs, invoking expertise gained from around the world, with special reference to the establishment of the highly successful Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai, UAE.
As Egypt is embarking on a project to establish one of the most ambitious SEZ projects the world has ever seen, it is imperative for businesses to understand how and when to invest in an SEZ and there are no better case studies than that of Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai. The largest port and free zone in the Middle East, Jebel Ali contributes to over 20% of Dubai’s economy and is home to around 7,000 companies. You’ll learn how Egypt can share in this success. Benefits of attending the workshop:
  • Explore the potential of Special Economic Zones in order to reap the benefits for your business
  • Gain insight into the successful establishment of free zone and hinterland areas from around the world so that you can extrapolate relevant information to apply to your business development in Egypt
  • Learn how and when to invest in free zone entities in order to maximise returns on investment
  • Develop new contacts amongst other businesses and authorities who are interested in the potential of investing in special economic zones
  • Understand just how businesses like yours can benefit from the lowered tax rates and investment incentives offered in special economic zones
