Egypt-Capacity Building for Commercial Attaches: The US Development Finance Corporation (DFC)

October 21, 2020

CLDP will conduct a multi-month program to build the capacity of a group of 14 Egyptian commercial attaches, with a quadruple focus: 1/ Providing knowledge about international trade and the WTO; 2/ Developing skills and knowledge required for increasing Egypt’s exports; 3/  Developing skills and knowledge required for attracting foreign investment into Egypt; 4/ Developing skills and knowledge required for facilitating joint-ventures between Egyptian firms and foreign firms. 

Until international travel resumes, this program will be conducted through a series of video-conferences and webinars. The seventh phase of the program will be a video-conference that will take place in the second half of October 2020.

In November 2019, Egypt’s Minister of Investment and International Cooperation signed a financing  agreement with  the CEO of the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC).

The purpose of the video-conference will be to help the Egyptian commercial attaches gain a good understanding of DFC with a two-fold emphasis: a) DFC’s mission, structure, responsibilities, key activities; and, b) The role that DFC can play in the financing of U.S. investment projects into Egypt.

DFC’s staff will give a two-part presentation:

Part I: Overview of DFC (mission, structure, responsibilities, key activities).

Part II: Based upon one or two examples, the role that DFC can play in the financing of U.S. investment projects into Egypt.

Each presentation will be followed by a questions and answers session, moderated by CLDP.

In preparation for the video-conference, CLDP will send to the commercial attaches a document presenting DFC, document cleared by IFC.
