The Euromoney Egypt Conference 2017

Khaled El Mekati


Egyptian Exports Association

Khaled El Mekati is an electrical engineer who graduated from Cairo University in 1986. His goal in his early career was mainly to have the most recognized trading company specialized in building material and in finishing contracting works. Having achieved this in the late 90s and as he was entering the new millennium, a new perspective towards the development of his business through diversification and collaboration not only regionally but also internationally was initiated. Following this, companies in IT, energy, wood and office furniture were established in collaboration with Turkish and Italian partners, thus MITCO (Mikati for Investment & Trading) was born. Looking to the future and aiming for a sustainable business coupled with a responsibility towards the community, Khaled’s dream now lies in developing new environmental building material based on recycled waste and at the same time providing proper education to less fortunate Egyptian Citizens followed by enhancing their culture knowledge. Thus leading to a complete (educated, thoughtful and cultured) citizen living in a friendly environment. Paying back to the community through giving time to his country and business society as an in-kind contribution, Khaled served as Chairman of the Egyptian Junior Business association (EJB) and is currently the Chairman of the Egyptian Export Association.
