Get involved in the GACIC Committees
Want to have your say, make a difference, and get involved? We are always looking for volunteers interested in strengthening the Egyptian-German business community. The best way to do this is by joining one of the Chamber’s committees. Our committees are meant to support the chamber’s various priorities and initiatives. They rely on volunteer members from all sectors bringing a breadth and depth of expertise and experience that gives each committee a well-rounded knowledge base.
As a member, you can add your expertise and insight, and work closely with key government decision makers — by participating in one of the Chamber committees. The committees meet regularly, with the collective goal of improving the business climate and competitiveness for all who live and work here in order to foster bilateral trade and investment between Egypt and Germany.
Information and Communications Technology (ICT)
ICT covers a wider variety of interests, including telecommunications equipment, technology and services, IT services, computers, IT aspects of creative economy, software and software development.
The ICT Committee aims to contribute to the economic growth of Egypt in and through ICT and facilitate business collaboration with German partners.
Works with business and government leaders to engage in dialogue, education, and advocacy on energy issues facing investors in Egypt. This committee provides a forum for identifying and discussing common issues affecting the energy industry and consumers.

Works with government, business, and education leaders to increase workforce skill levels, help employers find skilled workers, and retain talented graduates.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) & Environment
Enterprises seen to be doing business with integrity are more likely to attract and retain highly-principled and motivated employees as well as ethically-oriented investors. The committee envisages pursuing ethics, compliance and corporate responsibility training to embed best practices for big and small companies and to promote a more environmentally responsible community.

Members of this committee provide feedback and planning support on our networking activities and event schedule, as well as present ideas for new ways for our members to connect. With a robust line-up of events every year, volunteers for this committee have a tangible impact on chamber-member experiences on a regular basis.
