Egyptian businessmen eye opportunities in South Sudan

Egyptian businessmen eye opportunities in South Sudan | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The head of the Egyptian Businessmen Association (EBA) Hussein Sabour said that the body is currently exploring potential investment opportunities in South Sudan and projected that the latter has the potential to be an economic powerhouse.

In statements carried by the government-owned Al-Ahram newspaper Sabour noted that the recent visit by Egypt’s Prime Minister Hisham Qandil to Juba was warmly and widely welcomed by the South Sudanese side and paved the way for Egyptian investments to flow into the country which he said lacks industrial infrastructure with an electrical energy production of about 4 megawatts compared to 28 megawatts in Egypt.

Sabour explained that businessmen from the two sides will exchange visits during the first half of this year. He pointed out that South Sudan is still a virgin state with huge potential for profits especially in sectors like construction and building materials, agriculture and trade.

The Egyptian businessman mentioned that homes in Juba are built of tinplates and there is no water or sanitation systems in place and thus any investment initiative will have a positive impact.

Coopération régionale dans les pays du printemps arabe - Des statistiques alarmantes

Un colloque international sur «Les perspectives de coopération régionale dans les pays du printemps arabe» a démarré hier à Sfax avec la participation d'une pléiade de chercheurs, d'universitaires et d'experts économiques de Tunisie, d'Egypte, d'Algérie, de Libye, et du Maroc.

Cette rencontre, qui se tient durant deux jours, est organisée à l'initiative de l'Association de recherches pour le développement économique et social (Ardes), de l'Institut supérieur de gestion industrielle de Sfax (Isgis) et de la Fondation Friedrich Ebert. (...)

Au cours de la première séance de ce colloque, les participants ont passé en revue les perspectives de la coopération entre les pays du printemps arabe, à savoir la Tunisie, l'Egypte et la Libye.

Dans ce cadre, le président du Centre de la Ligue des Etats arabes, et ministre plénipotentiaire, Belgacem Ghattassi, s'est interrogé sur les chances de réussite d'une coopération économique entre les pays du printemps arabe dans un contexte de plus en plus tendu marqué par des clivages idéologiques et des querelles politiques et partisanes.

Confirmant cette vision plutôt critique et sceptique, Yassine Essid, professeur à l'Université de Tunis, a, dans une intervention intitulée «Cultures et mythes révolutionnaires», évoqué certains aspects de l'échec général au niveau politique et officiel en dépit des échanges et des mouvements spontanés des peuples arabes à travers les frontières.

«Les statistiques sont des plus alarmantes, d'autant que les échanges économiques intermaghrébins ne dépassent pas les 2%», a indiqué, d'un autre côté, Faouzi Boussedra enseignant-chercheur à la Faculté polydisciplinaire d'El Jadida (Maroc) dans une communication intitulée «Coût économique du non Maghreb Arabe».

Par ailleurs, l'universitaire algérien, Ahmed Henni, a rappelé l'importance du facteur temps dans la concrétisation du rêve des peuples maghrébins en termes de coopération économique, considérant que le «temps d'observation est consommé» et que les hommes politiques doivent en prendre conscience.

L'INPP va bénéficier de l'appui du fonds égyptien de coopération avec le continent

L'INPP va bénéficier de l'appui du fonds égyptien de coopération avec le continent | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

L'ambassadeur de la République arabe d'Egypte en RDC, Achraf Ibrahim, a informé le Premier ministre congolais, Matata Ponyo, du désir de son pays de fournir des équipements et autres matériels didactiques pour la formation professionnelle.

 

Cela, à travers le Fonds égyptien de coopération avec l'Afrique. Le chef de l'exécutif congolais l'a mis en contact avec le ministre de l'Emploi, du Travail et de la Prévoyance sociale, Modeste Bahati Lukwebo, qui s'est tourné vers l'Institut national de préparation professionnelle (INPP).(…)

Après la visite des ateliers et salles de formation, l'ambassadeur Achraf Ibrahim s'est dit surpris et émerveillé par ce qui se fait à l'INPP.Il s'est donc rendu compte comment fonctionnent les centres de l'INPP et comment celui de la direction provinciale de Kinshasa est équipé. Il s'agit des équipements modernes utilisés, de la formation de qualité suivie par les formateurs et l'engouement des apprenants parmi lesquels les jeunes filles.

Il a précisé que les équipements en provenance de l'Egypte concernent la métallurgie et la menuiserie. Et que leur acheminement en RDC est enfin prêt.

« C'est un grand plaisir que l'Egypte soit aux côtés de l'INPP avec cette assistance logistique », (a indiqué le Ministre congolais de l’Emploi). Pour lui, c'est bien parti pour une coopération avec gouvernement égyptien. Et ce serait bien si cet envol prend une vitesse de croisière.

Il s'agit des équipements modernes utilisés, de la formation de qualité suivie par les formateurs et l'engouement des apprenants parmi lesquels les jeunes filles. (Les) équipements en provenance de l'Egypte concernent la métallurgie et la menuiserie.(..)

 

De son côté, l'Administrateur directeur général (ADG) de l'INPP, Maurice Tshikuya, a présenté au diplomate égyptien les atouts et faiblesses de l'établissement public qu'il dirige(…). Il a remis à l'ambassadeur égyptien un document dans lequel est repris l'état des lieux de l'INPP, surtout les filières que cet établissement public n'organise pas. Par exemple, la réparation des engins lourds, tels que les tracteurs, les camions-remorques, a-t-il avancé.

Riyad: Les pays arabes veulent plus de coopération


Al Qarra – Le renforcement de la coopération économique au cœur du troisième sommet économique et social arabe. Deux jours de discussions dans la capitale saoudienne Riyad  avec comme chef d’orchestre le président égyptien Mohammed Morsi.

L’occasion de réunir l’ensemble des ministres des finances et du commerce des pays arabes ainsi que de nombreux leaders politiques comme le président yéménite Ali Abdallah Saleh et le président somalien Hassan Cheick Mohamud.

Plusieurs intervenants ont souligné l’urgence de renforcer une coopération économique encore trop timide via de nouveaux programmes et partenariats. 

Objectif : aboutir à une véritable complémentarité économique.

Un rapport de la Fédération des chambres de coopération du Golfe souligne qu’en 2012 seulement 10% des échanges commerciaux de la zone s’est fait entre les pays arabes malgré les nombreux accords douaniers signés.

De nombreux obstacles empêchent une intégration plus poussée :

La lourdeur des procédures administrativesLes disparités des politiques économiques de chaque paysAinsi que les pratiques de dumping et de protectionnisme

Autre problème : la dépendance commerciale des pays d’Afrique du Nord vis-à-vis de l’Europe.

Pour s’émanciper de son partenaire traditionnel, favoriser les échanges et les investissements, la Mauritanie, le Maroc, l’Algérie, la Tunisie et la Libye ont lancé il y a deux semaines la Banque maghrébine d’investissement et de commerce extérieur.

Une institution attendue depuis plus de vingt  ans et qui sera opérationnelle cette année.

La Suisse et la République arabe d’Egypte ont signé, le 20 janvier 2013 au Caire, un accord-cadre concernant la coopération technique et financière et l’aide humanitaire. Cet accord définit un nouveau cadre légal pour renforcer la coopération entre les deux Etats à la suite des événements survenus dans le cadre du printemps arabe. Le budget prévu jusqu’en 2016 par la Confédération pour ce programme de coopération avec l’Egypte est d’environ 30 millions de francs par an.
Egypt-actus's insight:

Le Secrétariat d’Etat à l’économie (SECO), la Direction du Développement et de la coopération (DDC), la Direction politique (DP), la Direction du droit international public (DDIP) et l’Office fédéral des migrations (ODM) mettront en œuvre programmes et projets de façon coordonnée, cohérente et complémentaire.

La future coopération avec l’Egypte reflète la volonté de la Suisse de contribuer à une transformation démocratique du pays fondée sur l’Etat de droit et le respect des droits de l’homme. Elle se concentrera particulièrement sur i) la contribution au développement d’opportunités économiques équitables, en particulier pour favoriser l’emploi des jeunes, ii) le soutien à une croissance industrielle compétitive, à une meilleure accessibilité aux marchés internationaux et au développement d’infrastructures de base, iii) le renforcement de la gestion des finances publiques et du secteur financier, iv) le soutien à une gestion des migrations et la protection des personnes les plus vulnérables, v) le soutien à l’émergence d’un Etat participatif, inclusif, fiable et transparent par une contribution aux réformes politiques et sociales.

Le 20 janvier 2013, l’ambassadeur de Suisse, Dominik Furgler, et le ministre égyptien de la Planification et de la Coopération internationale, Ashraf El-Sayed El-Arabi, ont signé au Caire cet accord concernant la coopération technique et financière et l’aide humanitaire. Une coopération accrue en Afrique du Nord avait rapidement été annoncée par le Conseil fédéral le 11 mars 2011 dans le sillage du printemps arabe. Cet accord permettra d’accompagner l’Egypte dans son nouveau processus de réformes et de renforcer les conditions-cadre des échanges économiques entre les deux pays.

CrossCulture Plus funding programme

CrossCulture Plus funding programme | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

The CrossCulture Internships Programme is an exchange and dialogue programme of the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen/ifa (Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations). The programme is implemented in partnership with the German Federal Foreign Office. Since 2005 it offers young professionals and committed volunteers the opportunity to expand their professional and political competence as well as to gather international experience through a stay in another cultural context. The CrossCulture Programme transfers our commitment to intercultural dialogue into action.

Aims of the Funding Programme
CrossCulture Internships give young people from Germany and Islamic countries the chance to gather varied experiences abroad within their fields of professional activity and to share those experiences in their home countries. Besides the objectives of vocational and specialist qualification, the participants also gain an overview of the cultural, social and political structures in the host country. They establish new personal and professional contacts for future co-operation and familiarise themselves with cultural characteristics and behavioural patterns of the host country. Thus, the programme offers a forum for open dialogue and mutual learning for all those involved.
The integration of the interns into their respective home organisations ensures that the intercultural and professional experience gained abroad is incorporated into their activities. The intercultural exchange fosters on-going dialogue of people and institutions. Also, it boosts the formation of networks between organisations in Germany and Islamic countries in a sustained manner and stimulates transnational co-operation.

Focus Areas and Target Groups
CrossCulture Internships are mainly offered in the following fields:

Knowledge society & education
Legal dialogue, justice & human rights
International politics & political education
Environment
Economy & development cooperation
Media
Arts & culture

The target groups are young professionals and committed individuals in different areas of civil society as well as multipliers in media and other relevant organisations.  
Organisation of the Internship
The internship is scheduled individually according to applicants profile and the capacity of hosting organisations. The internship is offered from a minimum of six weeks to a maximum of three months. For each intern a suitable host organisation is identified by CrossCulture team at ifa, based on suggestions of the candidates and adapted to the specific profile of the respective participant. The internships can be complemented by accompanying activities matching the profile of the intern, e.g. individual meetings, conferences or seminars.

Application
The announcement of the internships is carried out by ifa with the assistance of the German diplomatic missions. The deadline for submission of your application documents is 15 February 2013 (date of receipt at the German diplomatic mission in your home country). More information on the application procedure is available at www.ifa.de/crossculture.

US Aid To Egypt Must Continue Despite Unrest, Says John Kerry

US Aid To Egypt Must Continue Despite Unrest, Says John Kerry | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Ending US aid to Egypt could contribute to "chaos" in the country, future secretary of state, John Kerry, has warned.

President Obama has requested almost $2 billion in aid for Egypt, about 80 per cent of which is for the military, and Congress seems willing to comply, for the time being at least.
 "A hold up of aid might contribute to the chaos that may ensue because of their collapsing economy...their biggest problem is a collapsing economy,” Kerry told New York-based NBC News.

Egypt is strategically important to the United States, especially because President Morsi has continued to support the peace treaty with Israel, and has taken steps to overcome security challenges in the Sinai Peninsula, Kerry explained.

Other US senators have also spoken of the importance of continuing US aid to Egypt.


During a trip to Egypt in January, veteran Republican senator John McCain said Israel was in favor of continuing the aid, and the US should "listen to the Israelis."


However, in November he called on the Obama administration to withhold financial aid from Egypt unless Morsi responded to opposition demands and rescinded a controversial decree that was later reversed.

"Egypt's adherence to its obligations under the 1979 peace treaty with Israel requires ongoing US support for Egypt's economy," Democrat senator Chris Coon said during a recent trip to Egypt.

Egypt-actus's insight:

The US provides more than $2 billion in financial aid to Egypt each year, the majority going to the military.

 

Since 1979 Egypt has been the second-largest recipient of US military and economic aid after Israel
