In the context of announcing the results of the WEF Global Competitiveness Report (GCR) 20162017 in Egypt, this conference analyzed the results of the GCR report and its implications for the Egyptian economy from the perspective of economic analysts, the government and the business community.
In addition, ECES launched its Sectoral Competitiveness Observatory (SCO), which aims to enhance the competitiveness of specific productive and service sectors through benchmarking Egypt against comparator countries. It also aims to contribute to guiding economic policies that impact these sectors positively. This new activity starts with the ready-made garments and food processing industries. Other sectors will follow.
