The Arab world and Germany traditionally share close and diverse business ties. German companies offer a huge variety of opportunities for cooperation and are not only able to provide high-quality goods, but also state of the art know-how. Just recently, the World Economic Forum ranked Germany as the most innovative country in the world.
On the other hand, the Arab economies have successfully overcome the period of low oil prices. Economic development in the region is gaining more and more momentum. Latest studies expect positive growth rates of 2 to 4 percent in most Arab countries. In Egypt and Iraq, growth could even reach 5 to 6 percent again. Overall, this is expected to offer both German and Arab company’s ideal opportunities for sustainable business and cooperation.
In order to enhance the already fruitful ties, Germany is eager to support the positive development and assist in realising the versatile economic development programs in the region.
To further strengthen and enlarge sustainable business relations between Germany and the Arab countries, the Ghorfa Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry, together with high-profile partners from Germany and the Arab World, will host the
22nd Arab-German Business Forum
at the Hotel Ritz-Carlton Berlin
from June 25th to 27th, 2019.
The event is held under the patronage of the German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, H.E. Peter Altmaier, who will give a Keynote speech. In addition, the Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, Dr. Gerd Müller, will give a keynote speech at this year’s Gala Dinner.
This year’s partner country of the Forum is the Arab Republic of Egypt. We are delighted to welcome the Prime Minister, H.E. Dr. Mostafa Madbouly, as the Guest of Honour to the Forum.
Once again, more than 600 leading experts and decision makers from business, politics and science will attend the event. It is a well-established conference that offers an excellent networking opportunity to establish new business relationships and to enhance existing ones with German counterparts.
