Special Feature: Q&A with Ayman Ismail "Entrepreneurship in Egypt: A growing ecosystem despite challenges"
With Dr. Florence Eid-Oakden, Chief Economist
This month, we conducted our Special Feature dialogue with Ayman Ismail, Chairman of Endeavor Egypt.
We share some of Ayman's highlights here:
- Tough regulations, access to capital and finding talented labour represent the main challenges to entrepreneurship in Egypt.
- The government’s inability to provide enough jobs for the young population makes entrepreneurship a necessary tool to harness Egypt’s economic potential.
- Progress to support entrepreneurs has been made by the government’s educational reform programme as well as the financial efforts taken by the Central Bank.
Every quarter, Arabia Monitor publishes a Special Feature dialogue with regional leaders including central bank governors, ministers and executives.
