The Egyptian economy has consistently been on a modernisation course. On the African continent, apart from South Africa, Egypt is the most industrialised country. With its comprehensive economic and legal reforms, Egypt has started a very successful catching up process. That makes the country attractive for exports.

With around 80 million inhabitants, today Egypt is the second largest economy in the Middle East and North Africa, the so called MENA region. Due to its strong domestic economy and its successful reform policies, the country has risen in importance for foreign organisations not only as a sales market, but also as a production location. Egypt’s most important trading partner is the European Union.

Despite the latest reforms, the entry into the Egyptian market is still not simple. Without knowledge of its laws, regulations and customs, it continues to be difficult to access the Egyptian market.

Therefore the selection of the right local partner – may it be as associate, sales representative, dealer or importer – is a decisive success criteria. Much focuses on the basis of family or social relationships, which a foreigner has no access to. Therefore much greater importance is attached to the network of a local partner.
