Date : 2/11/2004

Speakers : Michael Klein, the World Bank and IFC

The last few decades saw a worldwide shift in favor of relying on the private sector to boost economic growth, and Egypt is no exception. However, this shift has not been universally successful. Drawing on international experience, Mr. Klein explained the reasons for success in some places more than others. He also shared his views on specific reforms in areas such as infrastructure and SMEs.
