UK Export Finance (UKEF) and Hassan Allam Holding, a privately held engineering, construction, and infrastructure firm led by Egyptian businessman Hassan Allam, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to increase cooperation in a number of projects across Africa.

The MOU signed at the British Embassy in Cairo is aimed at bolstering and deepening cooperation in order to secure sustainable inward investment into the UK, and promote mutually beneficial trade and financing opportunities across Africa.

The agreement represents a significant step forward in fostering cooperation and driving economic growth between the UK and Africa.
