7.Upcoming Conferences The sixteenth (16th) ASEA Annual General Meeting and Conference will be hosted by the Egyptian Exchange in Cairo, Egypt on 2nd – 4th December 2012. The theme of the conference is “Unleashing Africa’s Investment Potential- what could be done by African Capital Markets?”. 2012 Strategic Initiatives of the Association FTSE ASEA Pan African Indices The Annual General Meeting received a presentation from FTSE International on the proposed FTSE ASEA Pan African Index which will measure the performance of eligible equity securities on ASEA member exchanges. The Annual General Meeting endorsed the design which is based on FTSE’s global benchmark index design principles which are rules based, transparent, comprehensive, and representative and incorporate strong governance. The Indices will increase the visibility of African markets by tracking the performance of these markets and facilitate the development of new products such as ETFs which can also be listed on the ASEA member Exchanges. ASEA and FTSE shall be launching the index on December 3rd 2012 in Cairo, Egypt. The African Development Bank The Annual General Meeting authorized the ASEA President to continue discussions with the African Development Bank (AfDB) on areas of cooperation between ASEA and the African Development Bank. The President visited the African Development Bank in Tunis and agreed on the following priority areas; 1.The Bank is the largest investor in African private equity funds. It is also a key supporter of the African Venture Capital Association, which is the private equity fund trade association. The Bank can leverage its position as an important investor in private equity funds to encourage these funds to exit their investments via listings on African Stock Exchanges. 2.The Bank’s pension fund is looking to expand the range of asset classes in which it invests. By investing in African listed stocks and bonds, the pension fund would help to expand the number of investors and add liquidity to African markets. 3.The Bank is a major issuer of bonds on the international and local markets. By listing its bonds on African securities exchanges, the Bank would encourage market development and potentially open up new assets to African investors. 4.The Bank is leading the African Financial Markets Initiative (AFMI) that includes developing an African bond index and an African Bond Fund. The Bank could promote market development by listing the index and the fund on African exchanges as well as

encouraging African governments to also list the underlying bonds in which AFMI’s African Bond Fund intends to invest. 5.Through the African Development Institute (EADI), the Bank provides capacity building and training. EADI and ASEA could work together to develop joint capacity building programs focusing on capital market themes. 6.ASEA is looking at a number of market models that can lead to a closer integration of existing national Exchanges with a view to broadening and deepening these national Exchanges. In this connection, the implementation of a “hub and spoke” interconnectivity project could ensure the cross-linking of African stock Exchanges through technology. However, the implementation of this project requires the availability of financial resources and the Bank would help ASEA identify resources from trust funds and other sources to implement this initiative. ASEA Rules The Annual General Meeting on December 11, 2011 discussed the proposals on new ASEA Rules to accommodate the following:• Filling of casual vacancies on the Executive Committee; • The procedure for removal and automatic disqualification of the representative of a Member at the Executive Committee; • The acceptable seniority of both the representative and alternate of a Member at the Member organization; • Broadening the membership of ASEA to include organizations in the financial services sector, with whom collaboration will further the objectives of ASEA. The Rules will be presented to the Members for approval during the Annual General Meeting of December 2nd 2012.


Sierra Leone

New Member Interview with Mr Gibrilla Sesay Acting Chief Executive Officer Sierra Leone Stock Exchange

Sierra Leone Stock Exchange When was the SLSE formed? – Brief Background The Sierra Leone Stock Exchange was commissioned on 17th July 2009 to provide a venue for enterprise formation and a market place for trading of Equities, Commodities, Bonds, Forex and Derivatives

The stock exchange started trading with one company listed (Rokel Commercial Bank) on its official list, and two brokerage firms (First Discount House and Capital Discount House) acting as agents for trading in securities. The Exchange was commissioned by the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone

privatisation process is putting pressure on the capital market development. 3. The local content policy has not been enacted yet in Parliament. This is a major factor that will underpin the growth of the capital market

Trading on the floor of the exchange commences at 10 am and closes at 12 pm Mondays and Thursdays.

prospects the exchange can capitalize on, for instance, both the mining and agricultural industries are showing positive indications. Once the local content policy bill is in full operation, most if not all the companies operating in these industries will be listed on the exchange, thus improving the financial position of the exchange going forward

Where do you see the SLSE in five Trading Hours & No of trading per years? Looking at the macroeconomic outlook of Sierra Leone, there are various growth week:

How many staff do you have?

Currently the exchange has five permanent staff and three interns but looking to recruit three more additional staff to strengthen its human resource structure. The interns are students from the University of Sierra Leone wanting to gain practical experience in their areas of studies.

What are your achievements so far?

• The exchange has signed a partnership contract with Bloomberg to host its market data with the view of gaining global recognition. • The exchange is now a member of the African Securities Exchanges Association • Through persistent lobbying and campaign, the government has agreed to disinvest its 51% stake in Rokel Commercial Bank. These shares will be offloaded through the stock exchange. • The Local Content Policy bill has passed through cabinet. The complete enactment of this bill will deepen the capital market and subsequently improve activities in the stock market.

Why did decide to join ASEA?

Being a member of ASEA will enable the exchange integrate with other exchanges in the Sub Region and subsequently develop its operations. Furthermore, it will create a platform for global growth and recognition.

Interview with

Oscar Onyema

Director General and Chief Executive, Nigerian Stock Exchange

Interview

Interview with Oscar Onyema

1)You have been at the helm of the Nigerian Stock Exchange for one year now, has it been exciting? Please tell us what leaps the Exchange has made.

I joined the Nigerian Stock Exchange on April 4, 2011 and it has been a rewarding and exciting experience, so far. Over the past year, the Exchange has made great strides in its commitment to providing a first rate capital market experience and to improving its service excellence. We have undertaken major reviews of our market and operations with a view to implementing innovations required to deliver a robust and efficient capital market.The NSE identified and successfully delivered on eight strategic initiatives to create an African institution that competes effectively in the global marketplace. These initiatives were aimed at developing a more transparent, liquid and accessible market with a modern market structure to support delivery of a wider range of investment products. By articulating and implementing these initiatives, as well as engaging investors, our listed companies, market operators, the regulator and prospective issuers who had lost faith in the capital market, we are enabling the return of a vibrant market.

2)The Exchange organizes Chief Executive Quarterly dinners, what does this involve?

We have ten initiatives we have been driving this year. The CEO Quarterly Dinners are part of our Advocacy initiative. They are hosted by the Nigerian Stock Exchange and are specifically designed for listed companies and prospective issuers. Our aim is to ensure that all our listed companies realize the value of listing on the exchange, and forums such as this are indeed key in that effort.These dinners are focused around industry segments, providing an opportunity for issuers and government agencies to interact around issues that affect particular sector groupings.They provide a platform to explore issues and discusskey concerns that can positively affect economic growth.

3.What are the most exciting new prospects for the Nigerian Stock Exchange? Mr Oscar Onyema Director General and Chief Executive Nigerian Stock Exchange

Some of the most exciting prospects for the NSE are tied to our ongoing efforts to develop product liquidity and depth, continued enhancement of our regulatory programs, stakeholder engagement and

financial literacy. Our focus has been on cleansing, restructuring and making the market more accessible and efficient, the right strategy for laying the foundation for the growth of the Nigerian capital market. The capital market remains an indispensable vehicle to ensure Nigeria’s continued development and it provides a vehicle for long-term ‘saving’ and ‘borrowing’, and hence, efficient use of financial resources. In terms of global exchange trends, the cycle in which we have been for the last few years presents an incredible opportunity for investors. As the reforms continue, we remain confident that the market will soon be well on its way to recovering its vibrancy.

4)Currently, what initiatives is the Nigerian Stock Exchange involved in?

Our 2011 transformation kicked off with the reconstitution of our Board committee structure and the establishment of six Board committees to guide the management of the Exchange, leading to enhanced corporate governance of the bourse. We also implemented a ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy aimed at ridding the market of regulatory infractions. An in-house Investigation Panel was reconstituted and seven new violations introduced for broker-dealers. Issuer rules were also revised, and stiffer penalties assigned to two major violations. The result is a higher compliance rate across the board. A Market Segmentation exercise was completed to rebrand our markets and boards, and align industry sectors under which companies are listed (formerly 33) with Nigerian economic sectors and international industry classifications; and to address market depth, the NSE introduced a series of new products, including our first ETF and Shari’ah-compliant index for Islamic investors. To enhance the investor experience, a new Website, with a real-time live feed to a ticker, was launched in January, alongside X-Net, a virtual private network (VPN), to enhance connectivity (20x faster) to the Exchange’s trading systems. The NSE recorded another milestone with the announcement of ten market makers approved to conduct market making activities which kicked off in September – this is accompanied by securities lending and short selling. For the first time in our history, we ramped up business development efforts to attract ASEA

and retain top quality companies, including revising our listing rules, deploying systematic sector-board- and productspecific marketing strategies, and we are gearing up to launch more value-added services for issuers, to address specific concerns hindering market growth. Finally, the NSE is on its way to becoming fully IFRS compliant and our initiatives are centered on technology and product development. We are overhauling our systems, technology-based solutions and data services, as well as advocating changes to policy, with the aim of transforming the Nigerian market into “the gateway to African capital markets”.

5)What are your views on integration of African stock exchanges?

Integration of exchanges is not a new concept. It has been done successfully in different parts of the world. When people talk about integration, the one example that always comes to light is the Nordic exchanges, but there are also the Baltic exchanges, MILA (the Integrated Latin American Market) and the ASEAN trading link. While their models are similar, you also have integration via mergers and the single market/ regional operator model. African stock exchanges struggle with liquidity and depth, challenges that can possibly be addressed by integration. While the conversation has been ongoing for many years now, it is still unclear how and to what extent integration might occur in our region. From a simple consideration like different time zones to a more complex consideration like currency conversion, more work needs to be done to determine the right model. The right model will hinge on the ability of each jurisdiction to facilitate (and implement) requisite changes to policy and regulation, two key ingredients of successful integration.

6)How is the Nigerian Stock Exchange positioning itself to take advantage of the renewed interest in Africa’s stock markets? The initiatives the Nigerian Stock Exchange has embarked upon are critical to ensuring interest in our capital market. By providing a first rate capital market experience and improving service excellence, as well as by implementing innovations required to deliver a robust and efficient capital market, only then can we compete effectively in the global marketplace. As I mentioned, our initiatives are aimed at developing a more transparent, liquid and accessible

10 ASEA

I 2012 I Issue 1

market with a modern structure to support delivery of a wider range of investment products which is what investors around the world are looking for. We are on track, and we remain committed to achieving the objective.

7)Where do you see Africa’s Stock Exchanges in the next five years?

The Economist Intelligence Unit of the Economist Group conducted an outward looking (2025) survey which captured the following: • The legal and regulatory environment of emerging markets as the most likely challenge to derail companies from developed countries looking to emerging stock exchanges for their IPOs (32%); • An uncertain regulatory environment as the main concern with choosing to list on an emerging market stock exchange (56%); • Liquidity/turnover velocity as the most important factor when choosing a stock exchange/market for an IPO (62%); • Stock exchanges in developed markets will have to work harder to attract companies from emerging markets to list (76%); and • Stock exchanges in developed markets that underestimate the competition from emerging market exchanges will lose market share to them (76%). This insight, along with the trends we are seeing in the Nigerian market, leads me to believe that African market are on their way to experiencing a new kind of growth. As the BRICs struggle to maintain the level of growth they have experienced in the last few years, this provides an opportunity for the emerging markets, especially the African capital markets. With a strong regulatory environment, diverse investment products, liquidity and a high level of service and excellence, we will be able to compete effectively with other global markets. This is our time, and we should embrace it.


Maximizing value through strategic investor relations Anne Guimard President, FINEO

Maximizing Value through Strategic Investor Relations

Competition is a fact of corporate life. Companies compete for customers, talent and resources everyday with each group having its own carefully crafted plan. These plans ensure that revenue enhancing growth strategies are adequately resourced, supported by an appropriate and optimal organizational structure and their success is closely and frequently monitored. Yet, there is another type of competition, which is often overlooked. This is the competition for capital and, if not properly addressed, can jeopardize all efforts to create value. Winning investors over should therefore be a strategic goal, as equally important as increasing profits or gaining market share. With Africa fast gaining momentum as the next investment frontier, this is the opportunity for African companies to raise their profile in the global investment community and attract the capital they need to fund their growth or to achieve a fair valuation. Set out below is a few guidelines on how to achieve this. From disclosure requirements to Investor Relations More often than not, Investor Relations is restricted to complying with listing requirements. However, Investor Relations actually matters to a much broader group of audiences. Table 1 depicts these groups.

Shareholders and Bond Holders

Capital markets professionals

Individual shareholders Institutional shareholders Portfolio managers Buy-side analysts Employee shareholders Bond holders

Stock market authorities Bankers Brokers sell-side analysts ales forces sales trading proprietary trading Independent research analysts Rating agencies (credit, socially responsible investment, corporate governance)

Journalists

Other stakeholders

General press Financial and economic press Trade press

Customers … and competitors Suppliers Local communities Trade associations Employees Etc.

Each constituency will be interested in a wide range of topics that will, more often than not, go beyond the company’s financial statements. To this end, there is a lot more to Investor Relations than only numbers. Stemming from this, it is therefore the strategic responsibility of Investor Relations to: • • • • • • •

Anne Guimard President FINEO

12 ASEA

I 2012 I Issue 1

Establish and maintain trust Retain existing shareholders Motivate and inspire stakeholders, not only shareholders Win over new targets Communicate the company’s brand Contribute to building corporate reputation Achieve a fair valuation and lowering the cost of capital.

Lowering the cost of capital by creating a competitive advantage Research has proved that in the short term stock markets are irrational and rarely reflect fundamentals . This could easily convince management teams that Investor Relations beyond regulatory compliance has very little impact. However, the same research has proved that markets are efficient in the long run1. Moreover, the financial market crisis


has increased investor demand for transparency and a more candid approach to communication. Understanding this will elevate Investor Relations from a necessary evil to a competitive advantage. Whether your company is considering a listing or is already listed, a well crafted Investor Relations strategy can help: • Take advantage of sector valuation discrepancies between geographies • Diversify your shareholder base • Establish your reputation through transparency and corporate governance • Create and raise brand awareness for your products and services • Appeal to new customers • Identify potential suppliers and service providers • Attract high potential executives • Lower the cost of capital through increased liquidity and improved valuation. There is ample academic research and empirical evidence that the Return on Investment (R.O.I.) in Investor Relations can be measured. According to Rivel Research, portfolio managers and buy-side analysts attribute a premium of 10% of a company’s valuation to good investor communications and a discount of 15% to bad investor communications. Similarly, a recent analysis by Thomson Reuters Extel indicated that the stock prices of companies, which are highly regarded for Investor Relations, tend to outperform the broader market. The analysis found that since 2007, the top 10 European Investor Relations Extel winners outperformed the Euro STOXX 600 by 28.8% on a total returns basis. This performance has widened since 2008, as investors required better communication.

Rising to the challenge

These statistics underscore the strategic need for Investor Relations and should convince companies to step up their efforts and meet the challenges of Investor Relations, namely: • Mastering and conquering a new competitive environment • Regulatory compliance • Striking the balance between the short-term expectations of financial markets and the company’s long-term value proposition • Maintaining and increasing investor demand for your company’s securities • Meeting significant demands and high expectations from new “clients” (e.g. financial analysts, institutional investors, retail shareholders, journalists). This can be achieved by strategically positioning Investor Relations as part of the executive team (the “C-Suite”) and ensuring: • Professional and cost-effective Investor Relations infrastructure • A bridge between the company, its management and the financial markets. In conclusion, it is a misconception that the quality of an Investor Relations programme is contingent upon a company’s size and their financial resources. On the contrary, these should matter least, especially in today’s digital age when information is available at the click of a button. What matters more is that the Board of Directors and the management team buy into corporate governance, transparency, accountability and communication. Finally, although the factors behind share price performance are varied and complex, the quality of Investor Relations can be a real competitive advantage. The market rewards effective communication, visibility and transparency in the long run. To this end, companies who choose to relegate Investor Relations to regulatory compliance do so at their peril.

Johannesburg Stock Exchange JSE’s new Equity Trading Platform in SA after Decade in London Move marks new era for exchange Johannesburg 2 July 2012 – The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) celebrates the start of a new era for its equity market today with the launch of equity trading platform Millennium Exchange™, developed by technology solutions provider MillenniumIT.

Leanne Parsons, Director of the JSE’s Equity Market, comments: “As we have seen with the Borsa Italiana migration last week and similar migrations during the past year, the new platform provides exceptional levels of performance, functionality and capacity. The JSE’s move to the new equity system, which we have nicknamed Project Jaya meaning ‘victory‘ in the language of Sri Lanka, is a victory for the market.”

The day also marks the moving of the platform from London, where the trading engine has been situated for ten years, to the JSE building in Johannesburg. These changes are aimed at enhancing operational efficiencies for market participants, who are expected to benefit from executing transactions almost 400 times faster than the present trading solution.

Parsons explains that one reason for the decision to relocate the trading engine to Johannesburg was the increased operational stability that this move would offer. “The handful of incidents that we have had requiring the equity market to be halted, have been related to our international connectivity links. Clearly these have had reputational impacts. By moving the engine to Johannesburg, we eliminate this problem and are able to offer our clients improved service availability and stability.” MillenniumIT, which has over a decade of experience in building technology solutions for the capital markets, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) and is based in Sri Lanka. Millennium Exchange is the company’s flagship product with 14 installations live worldwide (excluding the JSE) and is known for its speed and scalability. “We are very pleased that Millennium

The platform is housed within the JSE’s recently completed new state of the art data centre based on Tier 3 specifications and is designed to ensure 99.98% availability. The seamless migration from the previous TradElect platform follows Borsa Italiana’s identical switch last week. As with the JSE, this move was successful and followed extensive testing and consultation with stakeholders.

The move could not have happened without effective cooperation between the exchange and all its clients, says Parsons. “We would like to extend our sincere appreciation and thanks to all our clients for their efforts and support.” Parsons says that the adoption of Millennium Exchange could have a significant impact on trading volumes by attracting a greater share of high frequency trading when collocation and the appropriate billing models are in place. Trading volumes increased significantly when the JSE adopted trading platform JSE SETS in 2002, and climbed again when the exchange moved to the present trading platform JSE TradElect in 2007. JSE TradElect was licensed from the London Stock Exchange and maintained and operated by the London bourse. “There is anecdotal evidence to suggest that when exchanges increase their trading speeds they also boost levels of trading. This is important in order to deepen a market,” adds Parsons.

Exchange is now live at JSE, South Africa’s only full service securities exchange. Millennium Exchange is a highly flexible and scalable next generation trading platform that offers ultra-fast order processing capabilities. This will enable JSE to increase its trading volumes at low cost and provide its customers with an unbeatable trading experience in terms of speed, efficiency and technology,” comments Tony Weeresinghe, CEO of MillenniumIT and Director of Global Development at the LSEG. Speed is becoming increasingly important in the exchange industry as exchanges cope with the rapid rise of automated trading. Those exchanges that have trading systems with the lowest latency – the time between when an order is received, processed and acknowledgement sent – will retain and grow market share. In future, the JSE will manage and operate the trading engine itself. This allows the JSE to grow trading volumes and contain trading software costs. Note to Editors The move of the trading system to Johannesburg has been welcomed by market participants. “The Millennium IT system is the way forward and puts SA on par globally with multiple other markets. It will not only be faster but given the broader global user base it should be easier to support and for new users to integrate it into their platforms. The JSE handled the migration well, with no deadlines being missed – it is the 2nd of July today and we are going live,” says John Slettevold, Head of Equities, UBS South Africa. “The migration was handled professionally with all firms participating in the testing phases over the last few months to ensure that the system delivers as well as integration into downstream internal systems,” says Ashvin Mancha, CEO of Afrifocus. “It was really an important step to bring the trading engine back to South Africa as it allows us to have control of our own trading engines and the system will be much faster. Location and speed is everything and we could only but benefit by having it right here,” says Erica Bruce, Director of Navigare.

Site Seeing in Egypt

Ancient Attractions

Pyramids of Giza The Giza Pyramids are a constant and popular attraction for the world at large. They stand for ancient Egyptian civilization’s best and most archetypal work. Together with the Sphinx, they simply embody ancient Egypt. Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops) The Great Giza Pyramid of Khufu is the last surviving member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was originally 146 m (479 ft) high but now stands a still impressive 137 m (449 ft). Over 2 million blocks of stone were used to construct it, and all with manual labor. Pyramid of Khafre (Chephren) The Giza Pyramid of Khafre is a little smaller than the Great Pyramid but appears slightly larger than it from a few angles because of a better position on the plateau.

The Djosers Step-Pyramid was the first pyramid built under supervision of the architect Imhotep during the Third Dynasty. Construction of the step pyramid required that six mastabas (a then common type of tomb) be placed atop each other. The Djosers Step-Pyramid is located in Saqqara, an ancient necropolis on the plateau above the Nile Valley.

Memphis Open Air Museum

Egyptian Museum The Egyptian Museum in Cairo provides you with the opportunity to see Egypt ancient history up close and personal. It has a number of wonderful items in their collection. The Egyptians have a very unique belief in the afterlife, and this collection contains many traces of that. One can see sarcophagi, funeral art, and many other items and artifacts.

In addition to its political and administrative functions, ancient Memphis also served as a center for the worship of the god “Ptah”, in fact the city was seen as the “seat” of the god. Today, the remains of a great temple to Ptah as well as some royal palaces, and a large necropolis are also available for visitors to explore.

Cairo Citadel

Abu Sir Necropolis

The Citadel, also known as the Saladin Citadel of Cairo, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Cairo and throughout all of Egypt. The Citadel is part of the Muqattam Hill near the center of the city. It was once renowned for its breezes and beautiful scenery, as far back as Ayyubid ruler Salah al-Din, who built it and then fortified it against attack. The estimated construction date is between 1176 and 1183.

Khan El Khalili Bazaar The Khan El Khalili Bazaar is one of the oldest markets in Egypt, begun in the late 1300s. Islamic Cairo is famous for its open air markets. This market has deep historical roots. It was founded by Emir Djaharks elKalili under Burji Mamlik Sultan Barquq. The Emir built what is called a caravanserai,

Djoser’s Step Pyramid

Today however visitors can still find some of its remaining wonders, including a monumental statue of Ramses II and a beautiful sphinx carved from a single, enormous piece of alabaster. Weighing in at around eighty tons, the sculpture is one of the most commonly visited attractions in the city.

Pyramid of Menkaure (Mycerinus) The Giza Pyramid of Menkaure is the smallest of the Giza Pyramids and stands just 62 m (203 ft) high (originally 66.5 m).

a place where travelers stopped to rest for a while on their long journeys. These waypoints are unique to the Middle East and allowed for enough room so that animals could be allowed to take in the shade, as well. The original caravanserai still stands today in the market.

The Necropolis of Abu Sir contains fourteen pyramids, primarily the earlier “step” pyramid style, and is also the location for one of the most significant and largest finds of papyri in history. Those visiting the historic capitol city of Memphis the neighboring royal burial sites at Saqqara, or the vast pyramid field at Giza will want to include the site in their itinerary. The site is the elite and exclusive final resting ground for many of the Old Kingdom pharaohs, nobles and other important Egyptians, particularly those of the fifth dynasty.

Dashur Pyramids Historically, all architecture evolves from very simplified forms to more

complex varieties. This can be seen in the development of such structures as log cabins to skyscrapers, and even in pyramids. For a glimpse at the earliest true Egyptian pyramids most visitors make a point of visiting the Dahshur pyramids complex. It is here that the pharaoh Snofru, or as some say Sneferu, transitioned away from his earlier “step” pyramid formation and attempted the first smooth sided structures. Though it is generally unknown as to why the styles changed, since it required a bit of experimentation and advanced engineering in order to perfect these structures, but the Dashur pyramids are the very first of their kind.

Maidum Pyramid The Maidum Pyramid, also spelled as the Meidum Pyramid, is found south of Cairo. This pyramid was originally built for Pharaoh Huni who was the last ruler of the Third Dynasty in Ancient Egypt. After the step pyramid’s completion, it was usurped by Sneferu, who succeeded Huni, and then turned it into a “true” pyramid by fitting in the steps with a special encasing. Eventually this pyramid collapsed at some point during the New Kingdom rule.

Modern Attractions Islamic Cairo Very different from the modern downtown Cairo district and its suburbs to the west, Islamic Cairo is similar in its ties to Islam as compared to the rest of the city. However, this area of the city has most of the famous Islamic monuments. The Fatimid caliphs, founders of Cairo, raised many of these monuments. Before modern Cairo, this was “Fustat” or Old Cairo. People here still live right by historic monuments and mosques; many of them are very poor. It’s a mustsee for any visitor, with its combination of trade, commuting, worship, and shopping.

waters just outside of Cairo, or the pleasure of a lunch or dinner aboard a beautiful ship making its way along the shores of one of the world’s most famous rivers.

Cairo Opera House The funds for the opera house’s construction were originally donated by Japan after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak visited Japan in 1983. Construction work began two years later and in 1988 the building was finally dedicated. This venue seats 1,300 people on four different levels. It welcomes operas and ballet shows, and is offered as the entertainment on certain luxury tours. Five hundred more people can be seated in the “Small Hall” area of the floor, though it is usually used for chamber music. There is also an Opera Museum, which displays many historic documents that call to mind historical performances that actually took place in the theatre. Lastly, there is an amphitheater for outdoor entertainment (very popular in the summer).

Luxor Luxor is a great place to relax and it is near some of the prominent temples. Located on the Nile, many cruises depart and arrive here daily. Luxor is divided by several districts that tend to “group” all of the attractions. First, there is the East Bank (which refers to the location from the Nile River). This area includes some major temple and museum sites as well as the town of Luxor and various hotels, restaurants and train stations. Next, there’s the West Bank location, which offers the ruins of the city.

Aswan Aswan, Egypt is a city located in the southern part of Egypt and located on the banks of the Nile River. This beautiful city is just over 80 miles south of Luxor. The city has a number of different things for visitors to see and do, including ancient temples, mosques, islands, bazaars, and more. You can see the magnificence of Abu Simbel, Kom Ombo and Edfu, or St. Simeon Monastery. This is also the area from which many travelers depart for tours of the camel market, boating trips to Aswan Dam, visits to Philae Temple, and felucca tours of the Nile, and more.

Sharm El Sheikh Sharm El Sheikh is a city situated on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in South Sinai Governorate, on the coastal strip along the Red Sea. It provides travelers with an unprecedented array of opportunities. They might head to Petra or Mt. Moses, they could visit Ras Mohamed on the “Red Sea Riviera”, the smaller coastal towns of Dahab and Nuweiba as well as the mountainous interior, Saint Catherine’s Monastery and Mount Sinai. They can head to the desert to see the Coloured Canyon, or even make a short visit to Cairo too.

Nile Cruises Cairo Nile cruises are an essential part of any visit to this historic land. Imagine a sunset felucca sailing along the glistening
