Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi addresses on Thursday the World Economic Forum in Davos, which kicked on Wednesday with the participation of more than 40 world leaders and 1,500 heads of major economic companies and investors.
Sisi will talk about the steps Egypt has already taken as part of the roadmap plan, including holding a referendum on the new Constitution and presidential polls, in addition to preparations for parliamentary elections to take place on March 21.
He will present Egypt's vision to boost national economy, improve investment climate and create an investment-magnet atmosphere through issuing the unified investment law.
The President will also focus on the giant projects being now carried out in Egypt to increase Gross Domestic Product, create more jobs and up development rates.
He will invite the participants to attend the economic summit that will take place in Sharm el Sheikh on March 13.
Sisi will also tackle terrorism and extremism and will call on the international community to step up efforts to fight this phenomenon and renew religious discourse.
The developments in the Middle East region, especially the Palestinian issue and the Syrian and Yemeni crisis, will figure high in his word.
Sisi will attend a dinner banquet hosted by the forum in his honor. The banquet, to be attended by 70 businessmen, aims at briefing businessmen on available investment opportunities in Egypt, Egyptian presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef said.
