Asia & Africa Committee Meeting

It was good to be able to have members attend in person our Asia & Africa Committee meeting on 8 June with Amr Elhenawy, Consul General of Egypt in Hong Kong, who updated members on Egypt’s latest business developments. 

Elhenawy said Egypt’s historical ties with Europe and its strong connections with and cultural understanding of Africa and the Arab and Muslim world makes the country an ideal launchpad for businesses to position their business center there to enjoy access to both markets. He added that Egypt also enjoys preferential tariffs for trade with Europe and the U.S., and zero tariffs with other African countries through the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), GAFTA and COMESA.

Following the presentation, the committee conducted its election. Members reelected Jonathan Lamport to stay on as Chairman, and Andrew Wells and Edmond Yue as Vice Chairmen, while Dewan Saiful Alam was newly elected as Vice Chairman.
