Workshop on trading with Egypt


Wednesday 6 September 2017



The Egyptian-British Chamber of Commerce invite you to their Workshop on Trade with Egypt; Export Documentation, Trade Finance & Customs Routines.

This event takes place on Tuesday 10 October from 9.00am at Barclays, Plaza Room, 5 The North Colonnade, London, E14 4BB.

Egypt is one of the largest markets in the MENA region, with a population of 95 million and growing. Its free trade agreement with the EU means that the country will have continued preferential access to the EU Single Market even after Brexit, and that it remains an important regional trade hub.

The UK exports goods valued at close to £1 billion per year to Egypt. Following the implementation of much needed economic reforms Egypt’s external sector is stabilizing. New documentation requirements were introduced by the Egyptian government in 2015/16 to support these reforms.

The objective of this workshop is to examine the various aspects of international trade documentation, and specific requirements for export to the Egyptian market. The workshop consists of three sessions with an opening presentation by the British Chambers of Commerce on UK Trade Policy. In the sessions, we will discuss how to prepare the content of your trade documents, payment methods and documentation, and finally customs routines.

The sessions are supported by Barclays International Trade, SGS, the Surrey Chambers of Commerce and Makowski Associates.
