Sunday، 06 May 2018 - 12:40 PM
Prime Minister Sherif Ismail is scheduled on Sunday 6/5/2018 to take part in the opening session of a high-level conference to be co-hosted by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) on promoting higher economic growth and jobs in Egypt.
The premier will deliver a keynote address on the positive tracks of the economic reforms' results.
IMF First Deputy Managing Director David Lipton, CBE Governor Tarek Amer and Minister of Finance Amr El Garhy will be among the speakers.
The event aims to recognize the successes in macroeconomic stabilization that Egypt has achieved, and to help in building consensus among stakeholders around the reforms needed going forward to attain higher and more inclusive growth and create jobs sustainably to meet the needs of Egypt's young and growing population, said the IMF.
The conference will shed light on global best practices and successful relevant experiences that can help enhance Egypt's homegrown structural reform agenda and address its medium-term challenges.
The conference will bring together international and Egyptian high-level policymakers and other experts to exchange perspectives, and to reflect on successful international reform experience and how these could be relevant in the Egyptian context.
Key topics to be discussed at the conference will include: macroeconomic stabilization as the foundation for inclusive growth and job creation; successful reform strategies and lessons from other countries; and policies to foster inclusive private sector-led growth.
The concluding session, in which a broad cross-section of representatives from civil society, academia and the private sector are expected to participate, will aim to draw implications for Egypt's goal of higher, inclusive and more sustainable growth.
