Legal Framework

Egypt 2022 Legal Framework

Foreign investors looking to establish a business in Egypt – whether directly or through a joint venture – can enter the market by establishing a legal entity, the structure of which would depend on the needs and the scope of business involved. The government continues to work to attract investment, especially in several mega-projects in fields such as electricity, energy, industry, agriculture, health care and construction. Investment Law No. 72 of 2017 grants general incentives and guarantees for companies incorporated under its remit, as well as special incentives for projects that are prioritised by the government. These guarantees include equal opportunities for all investors – irrespective of their nationality. This chapter contains a viewpoint with Girgis Abd El Shahid, Managing Partner, Shahid Law Firm.
