Rick David, chairman of UHY comments: “Egypt as a country has seen many welcomed reforms recently to stabilize and strengthen its economic position driven by public investments, private consumption, and exports of goods and services. We are delighted to welcome to the UHY network two new member firms in Egypt, equally enthusiastic, entrepreneurial and keen to join their efforts.
The firms will greatly extend our footprint in the Middle Eastern region and strengthen UHY’s regional market expertise, enhance our values and capabilities to serve our international clients who have investments and a business presence in this country and the wider region.”
