APCO Worldwide is working for the Egyptian Ministry of International Cooperation to promote US media coverage of its “engaging for impact” forum slated Sept. 8-9 at the Nile Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Cairo.

The Ministry pitches the forum as a meeting of national and international policymakers focused on sustainable economic growth.

Taking a cue from president Biden the forum will highlight the “significance of multilateralism with an emphasis on country ownership for ‘building back better’ in transition economies and developing countries in Africa.”

CNN anchor/correspondent Elena Giokas, Bloomberg anchor Manny Cranny and Sky News Saudi Arabia editor-in-chief Lubna Bouza are the journalists who will moderate sessions of the forum.

APCO’s one-month contract worth $10K plus expenses runs through Sept. 30.

The firm has Abigail Robbins handling the Egyptian work.
