Hussein Sabbour – Chairman of Egyptian Businessmen’s Association – stressed on Sunday the importance of supporting the partnership between public and private sectors to carry out more development investment projects in Egypt. In a speech at the opening session of "Government & Developer: A Partnership for Development" conference held Sunday, Sabbour also said it is necessary to benefit from the state of economic revival in Egypt by continuing the partnership between public and private sectors. Furthermore, Sabbour, who is also the chairman of Al Ahly For Real Estate Development, pointed out that real estate investors still need the government’s provision of more lands to develop and establish projects on. There are around 93% of land spaces developable, yet unutilized yet, he added. Sabbour has praised an initiative launched today during the conference to support the state partnership with real estate investors. This is the most positive initiative for it gives the opportunity to speed up the implementation of new investment projects, which were announced after signing memorandums of understanding at March’s Economic Summit, Sabbour noted. This initiative will contribute to improving Egypt’s economic atmosphere. Moreover, EBA chairman demanded removing the bureaucratic aspects standing against investors specially licensing and registering new lands.

Financial technology company SunGard Data Systems Inc is preparing to appoint financial advisers to explore a sale that could value it at as much as $10 billion, including debt, people familiar with the matter said on Friday. SunGard has asked investment banks vying for advisory mandates to prepare for interviews as early as next week, the people said. The company plans to simultaneously explore an outright sale as well as a potential initial public offering, the people added. Private equity-owned SunGard decided to explore a sale after it was approached by at least one other company about a potential takeover, one of the people added. The identity of that company could not be immediately learned. The sources asked not to be identified because the deliberations are confidential. A SunGard spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. One of the largest leveraged buyouts that preceded the 2008 financial crisis, SunGard is one of the longest-held investments in private equity history. Its owners have struggled to boost the company's value to the point where they can cash out and make a decent return.
Start small, win quick, then move on to bigger issues. That appears to be the European Union's strategy to pursue Google (GOOGL.O) in a competition dispute by choosing to push a narrow set of charges around its shopping service, while opening another investigation of Google's Android mobile phone software. Whether or not the EU succeeds in branding Google a market-abusing monopolist in web search - a big if, given that the competition authority has yet to publish its exact charges - the Internet giant could be pinned down for years to come in regulatory procedures and legal appeals. A drawn-out process is likely to embolden existing and would-be interlopers to step up assaults on Google's wide range of businesses, if the history of Microsoft's (MSFT.O) antitrust battles with U.S. and European regulators is any guide. In accusing Google of anti-competitive practices against rival shopping sites, the EU competition authority said it is continuing to investigate other areas, including alleged "web scraping" to copy content off of rival travel and local business review sites, and Google's restrictive practices on advertising.
