The Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace are organizing a hybrid event, in collaboration with the American University in Cairo Press titled “Unlocking Egypt’s Economic Potential: A Closer Look at Challenges and Required Reforms”.
Despite Egypt’s abundant resources, its economic growth falls short, leading to a growing debt crisis due to structural weaknesses and global shocks. Political influence affects policy decisions, raising questions about needed reforms for sustainable growth and equitable wealth distribution.
The event will take place at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, D.C. and will also be livestreamed. Speakers include Khalid Ikram and Heba Nassar, co-editors of The Egyptian Economy in the Twenty-first Century (AUC Press, 2022). They will be in conversation with Timothy Kaldas and Mirette Mabrouk. The panel discussion will be moderated by Nur Arafeh, a fellow at the Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center.
