It is worth mentioning that the criteria for choosing the top 100 organizations in the Egyptian market is determined through the analysis of 241 companies in the Egyptian stock exchange that made profits in 2016. Afterwards, the companies are filtered according to their revenues, net profits and market values. This process is to support and encourage investors and business men to inject their investments in the Egyptian market and execute more developmental projects.
The 50 most influential women in the Egyptian economy’s list was chosen according to certain criteria that was put in place by the ‘Fifties Forum’, which is considered the first female network including the most influential women in the economy and aims at continuing the forum’s plan that targets strengthening the role of women in different economic sectors. The forum also aims to achieve its vision for 2017, which works towards encouraging the nation to move forward in regards to the launching of the year of Egyptian women 2017.
