Abstract

Despite remarkable growth of the Egyptian economy during the last ten years, unequal treatment before law and unfair distribution of wealth led to the Revolution on January 25, 2011. The Revolution affected investment in Egyptian markets and reforming business laws has become essential to restore confidence in Egyptian markets, specifically the Capital Market and Investment Laws. These two branches of business law have undergone many developments over the years, which have improved them significantly; however, compliance with the law remains a major concern. Toward this goal, this Article surveys the economic activity in Egypt from a legal perspective. The purpose is to evaluate Egyptian laws affecting economic activity by analyzing the effectiveness and shortcomings of the relevant laws and proposing the necessary amendments to them in the light of Revolution’s impact.
