This review uses the OECD Policy Framework for Investment to provide an assessment
of the investment climate in Egypt and to discuss the challenges and opportunities
faced by the government of Egypt in its reform efforts. The review examines trends
in foreign investment and their socio-economic benefits, the country’s wider regulatory
framework on investors’ entry and expansion, its legal framework for investment, and
its strategy for investment promotion and facilitation. It also looks at Egypt’s zone-based
policies, tax policy and investment incentives, its strategies to promote responsible
business conduct, and progress in infrastructure connectivity.
OECD Investment Policy Reviews present an overview of investment trends and policies in the countries reviewed. This can include investment policy, investment promotion and facilitation, competition, trade, taxation, corporate governance, finance, infrastructure, developing human resources, policies to promote responsible business conduct, investment in support of green growth, and broader issues of public governance.
