15 June 2009 #SMMT News #UK Manufacturing

A delegation of more than 20 Egyptian companies seeking a wide-ranging introduction to the UK automotive industry has arrived in the UK on a trade mission arranged by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.


Representing vehicle and component manufacturers in the North African market but with a primary focus on Egypt, the delegation will attend SMMT’s International Business Group (IBG) meeting in Birmingham tomorrow (16 June) encouraging automotive trade links between the UK and Egypt.


The leader of the Egyptian delegation, Laila El Maghraby, will kick off proceedings with a short introduction to each visiting company before a keynote speech from UKTI’s Shakeel Mughal, an economist on the North African region. Mughal will provide detailed information on Egypt and the surrounding markets for the UK attendees. The day will end with a presentation from Control Risks regarding safety when travelling abroad on business. As the day concludes, UK businesses will be encouraged to attend separate one-to-one business discussions with the attending Egyptian companies.

The International Business Group provides a unique forum in which companies, both large and small, can share knowledge of the latest developments in key automotive markets around the world, providing access to a pool of expertise on business practices within those markets.  The next meeting is scheduled for 27 October 2009 and those looking to attend should contact
