Featuring Youssef Boutros Ghali, Minister of Finance, Egypt.
In 2004 Egypt began introducing economic reforms intended to increase trade, facilitate doing business, and promote growth. Those reforms have included floating the Egyptian pound, slashing corporate and personal income taxes by 50 percent, customs and investment reforms, and partial privatizations. Finance Minister Youssef Boutros Ghali will discuss Egypt’s liberalization agenda, including recent constitutional amendments affecting economic policy and its impact on Egypt and the region.
