Opening Egyptian Skies: Lost Opportunity?... or Waste of Resources?

Date : 9/30/2018

Speakers : Multiple Speakers

Although this controversy was addressed several times before, it has yet to be settled. If opening Egyptian skies represents a missed opportunity, it should be capitalized quickly as any delay would only mean harming Egypt's competitiveness, depriving it of significant revenues. However, if this measure is futile and would cost the national carrier huge losses, it should be abandoned.

This roundtable discussion will revisit this debate through conducting a cost-benefit analysis to assess public policies and projects and take into account all aspects in an objective manner, with a view to resolving this longstanding controversy.
