- Egyptian regulations encourage inward investment and start-ups, ease transition, stimulate commerce and show no bias against firms having a home base outside. On the contrary, the Egyptians are proactively sensitive to the special needs of foreign firms and expatriate workers.
- Setting up a business in Egypt is quite straightforward. Under Egyptian law, a foreign individual or company may operate in Egypt through an incorporated or unincorporated entity or a branch (i.e., a subsidiary, partnership or branch). All individuals engaged in commercial business and all legal entities have to register their businesses with the Trade Registry at the local chamber of Commerce.
A number of facilities offer comprehensive start-up services, such as office space, conference rooms and multilingual administrative and secretarial services. Generally, flexible arrangements can be made to suit individual needs.
