Egyptian Businessmen’s Association


Historical Backgraound

EBA was founded in 1975 and ratified in 1979 under the law 32/1964. EBA is a non-governmental, non-for-profit organization that seeks to unify the efforts of private Egyptian interests in contributing to the productivity and efficient national economic and social development of Egypt.
When established in the early seventies, the Egyptian Businessmen's Association mission was to unify the efforts of the Egyptian private sector in order to protect its interests, promote its products and enhance its productivity and efficiency in a more liberal and democratic environment. Yet, working within the frame of national economic and social development of Egypt. At that time the Egyptian economy was a central planned economy, the Egyptian Businessmen’s Association, in order to carry out these duties, had to be in the first place a lobbying power on behalf of the Egyptian business community to protect its interests and enhance the private sector existence. Presently, the Egyptian economy does not act under planned forces but rather under the free market forces. With all these privatization programs and the growing private sector share in the GDP together with the globalization process, the Egyptian private sector needs to prove itself locally, as well as, internationally. Accordingly, the Egyptian Businessmen’s Association has modified its activities to satisfy the new needs of the Egyptian business community, as a service provider and a catalyst facilitator as well as a lobbying power.
