AmCham Egypt Doorknock Mission
May 7th -12th, 2023
A delegation of senior executives representing AmCham Egypt will be visiting Washington, D.C. during the period from May 7th to May 12th for the Annual Doorknock Mission. Over the course of five days, delegates will meet with members of the U.S. Congress, Administration officials, think-tanks, media and leaders from the U.S. business community.
The AmCham delegation will seek to build on previous conversations on how to maintain a robust and thriving U.S.-Egyptian relationship. AmCham Members representing several U.S. corporations doing business in Egypt, as well as Egyptian companies that are active in the global economy will share information on the trade and investment opportunities Egypt’s dynamic economy offers to U.S. companies.
The U.S.-Egyptian partnership has been vital to the pursuit of both nations’ shared interests in the Middle East, which include regional peace and security; political, social, and economic stability; and expanding U.S. economic and commercial opportunities in the Middle East and Africa.
In recent years, these important shared interests have been put at risk by the global pandemic, the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its devastating economic consequences, the global surge in inflation, and the ongoing risk of a worldwide recession. In 2019, Egypt was enjoying steady growth, implementing needed economic reforms, and anticipating a bright future. Today, Egypt is being severely tested by these many exogenous factors and systemic shocks.
This year’s Delegation will seek to engage with policy-makers in a wide-ranging dialogue on how to maintain a robust and thriving U.S.-Egyptian relationship.
