Port Said – 2 October 2018

The 6th CSR Forum in Egypt 2018

Culture Center Port Said

Portsaid hosts the second CSR Forum in governorates, which will take place under a distinguished government patronage, to create a state of integration between the government, business sector and civil society efforts to achieve a real development in the Egyptian governorates.

CSR Egypt is organizing this event out of its belief in the efforts exercised by all stakeholders to prepare a comprehensive development plan, which in turn allows the country to achieve a qualitative leap in the life of each Egyptian citizen.

The forum highlights the actual needs of the governorates of the Suez Canal Region, including: Portsaid, Ismailia and Suez, as well as discussing the government’s plans to achieve a sustainable balanced development.

This is in addition to shedding light on the sustainable investment opportunities and discussing the methods of merging the business sector in Egypt Vision 2030. Furthermore, it will address the mechanisms of creating comprehensive economic and social development in the Suez Canal Region and determining the competitive advantages of each of the three governorates.

In addition, the forum will discuss the necessary factors for achieving industrial development.

It also plans to provide a professional training to enhance employment efficiency in the region and how to transform Egypt into a global logistics hub.

CSR Forum in Governorates – Suez Canal Region will host more than 500 CSR and sustainability experts and stakeholders, in addition to businessmen, investors, and government and NGOs representatives.
