In recognition of her significant role in the Egyptian banking sector, a 50-member woman-led forum has honoured Egypt's central bank sub governor for monetary policy Rania al-Mashat. Mashat will join the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in August as an advisor to the IMF's chief economist. Mashat joined the central bank in August 2005. At the time she was the youngest sub governor for monetary policy in the bank's history. Honouring al-Mashat took place during a ceremony on June 22nd attended by Minister of Planning Ashraf al-Araby, Minister of Social Solidarity Ghada Wali, Minister of Communications Yasser El-Kady, in addition to key Egyptian business figures. The member of Top50 Forum involves high-profile names that had been classified as the 50 most influential women in the Egyptian economy during The Best in Egypt’s Economy Summit, which was held in Cairo last January 27, under the auspices of the country’s prime minister.

European Union leaders said there could be no turning back for the U.K. after Prime Minister David Cameron used his last EU summit to express disappointment at his failure to win the referendum he called on Britain’s membership. “As of this evening, I see no way back from the Brexit vote,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters after the meeting in Brussels on Tuesday. “This is no time for wishful thinking, but rather to grasp reality.” Fellow government chiefs lined up to warn Cameron that delaying the period before the U.K formally activates the EU’s exit mechanism will prevent the start of negotiations over any future relationship. The prime minister repeated the message he’d given back home: despite the uncertainty it’s causing, that will be the job for his successor. During a debrief over dinner, Cameron told his 27 counterparts that their refusal to give him a deal that reduced immigration to the U.K. had cost him the referendum and his job, according to a British government official. He warned them that if they want a close economic relationship with the U.K. in the future, they will have to shift ground and find a way to tackle immigration, the official said.
At least five people were killed and scores injured on Wednesday in a bomb attack on a local administrative office in the Kurdish-held Syrian town of Tel Abyad, near the Turkish border, witnesses said. They said a suicide car bomber had attacked the building run by Kurdish local authorities in the town, which was captured by the powerful YPG militia last year from Islamic State militants in an offensive backed by U.S.-led air strikes. Tel Abyad lies north of Raqqa and had been a key supply line for the jihadi capital.
