Information about the partnership

Partner country since 2011

Participants in the programme to date: 393 executives

Political partner for the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action: Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) of the Arab Republic of Egypt

As the second largest economy in Africa, Egypt offers great potential for economic cooperation and investment. Its geographical location makes Egypt an important gateway to the Arab-speaking world and a bridge to the African and Arab economies. Issues with particular relevance for foreign trade and investment policy include climate action, renewable energy, waste management and healthcare. These are sectors where there is great potential for cooperation between German and Egyptian companies.

Partnering in Business with Germany is open to managers from all sectors. In the last few years, a large number of managers working in Egypt’s food industry have taken part in the programme. Other priority issues include Industrie 4.0, renewable energy (particularly hydrogen production) and healthcare. There is a growing demand for the circular economy and water management.

Egypt’s alumni organisation – the Egyptian Association for Industry and Development (EGYAID) – provides support and networking opportunities with German companies for former Egyptian participants of the programme.

It is working closely with the German-Arab Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
