We are constantly at the service of our members and network to follow up and connect with government leaders and business executives across the EMA region. Most recently, at the 6th Session of the German-Egyptian Joint Economic Committee in Berlin last week with H.E. Ahmed Samir Saleh, Egypt’s Minister of Trade & Industry, and Anja Hajduk, German State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action for Economic Affairs and Climate Action.

EMA President Heike Fölster represented the EMA during a special roundtable for the German industry organized by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) together with Dr. Ahmed Fikry A. Wahab, Managing Director of East Port Said Development and the Egyptian German Automotive “EGA”, and Dr. Jehan Saleh, Economic Advisor to the Prime Minister.

Many EMA members, among them SAP and others, were present during the proceedings, recognizing Egypt’s talented engineers and competitive labor costs, to name but a few of the remarkable advantages of this country. Exciting times ahead!
