Top 100 companies from Egypt?

G'day mates.

I don't see a skybar or economy section in Egypt forum. That's why I started this thread here, moderators.

I am very interested in a historical country such as yours. Can you name the top 100 firms from Egypt according to their revenues, turnover or sales for the year 2008? Any sources in English will be appreciated but if you could find the top 100 companies from Egypt with their revenues in Arabic or other languages, could you please translate them?

Cheers mate and don't take it the wrong way.

Oh by the way, I have heard of Naguib Mahfouz, Al Azhar University, Ahmed Zewail and Nahid Yousri (not joking!).

Egypt is such a mysterious and historical place full of charms, can you tell me any more intellectual and specially recent modern intellectuals of international repute and fame from Egypt?

Hey deanjones.

This wikipedia list of Egyptian companies is all I could find.

On the economy in general, according to the CIA, economic growth for 2008 in Egypt was at 6.9%, while population growth rate was 1.6%. You can find some good material here.

Hey there sorry for the late reply,

First of all thankyou for your interest in our country, you are welcome here anytime

The popular Egyptian magazine in english "Business Today Egypt" has a list called Bt100, lucky for you these are the top 100 companies in Egypt.

Here is their website:

www.businesstodayegypt.com

In their June issue, they will publish an updated Bt100 list, if its not available on thier website, I will run down to the stores, buy it, and type the list for you

I know for a fact that Orascom Telecom is probably the first or second on the list, and that Telecom Egypt and Vodafone are also one of the top.

Hope this helps!

Gee mate,

That's a terrific list! Thanks a lot and cheers!

BTW I really am interested in Egypt, thanks for the warm welcome. Can you point me to some notable scientists, engineers, architects, authors, artists, thinkers, and other intellectuals from Egypt? I have heard that Egypt is the heart of the Arab world, its leader.

"What Egypt thinks today the rest of the Arab world thinks tomorrow" - is that true?

Thank you very much indeed. I might visit Alexandria, Giza, and Sharm el Shaikh sometime.

Cheers!

I'll give you another quote.
"What the Arab world thinks today, the rest of the world thought 8 centuries ago."
Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Boutros Boutros-Ghali is the former Secretary General of the UN.
Magdi Yacoub used to be one of the world's leading heart surgeons.
Abdel Halim Hafez, Umm Kulthum, and Amr Diab are/were leading musicians.
