The Canada Egypt Business Council (CEBC) established a Research Unit as part of its overall strategy of increasing the number of services provided to its members. Under the leadership of Dr. Ahmed Ghoneim, the Economic Research Unit will be the institutional focus for applied economic and business policy oriented research identifying business interests, mainly of the members but with a wider scope, while taking into account the social and political aspects. The range of topics will be broad including: macroeconomic indicators for both Egypt and Canada, progress of monetary and fiscal policies, trade and industrial policies, regulatory framework including updates on recent laws and regulations, and specific sectoral studies.
A Quarterly Bulletin series will be published (December / March / June / September) aiming mainly at updating the members with the economic developments in both Canada and Egypt. Moreover, the Research Unit will publish 2 sectoral studies each year that focus on a certain sector and investigate the opportunities and challenges of doing business in this sector. Finally, specific studies that members need for specific purposes will be undertaken (3-4 per year).
