Egyptian Steel recognised in the World Finance 100 guide for 201717.1.2018 15:29Pressemelding

LONDON, Jan. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Egyptian Steel currently stands as one of the most powerful companies in Egypt. Its prosperity is largely down to the work of founder and CEO, Ahmed Abou Hashima, whose optimistic and bold approach has seen the company go from strength to strength - even in tough conditions. In spite of Egypt's 2011 revolution, which pushed the country through much turmoil, Egyptian Steel was able to take off, having been founded just the year before. Abou Hashima believes that investors shouldn't be put off in times of political uncertainty and economic upheaval. If they are brave, the rewards can be great. And if his organisation's performance is anything to go by, it seems these are wise words; Egyptian Steel's four steel plants now produce 2.3 million tonnes of steel annually. For its outstanding work, Egyptian Steel has been recognised by World Finance in the magazine's World Finance 100 guide, which identifies the world's strongest organisations. Here, co

LONDON , Jan. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Germany's capital Berlin may be well known as a vibrant tourist destination - the city welcomed 12.7 million visitors last year - but it also offers fantastic investment opportunities. Currently, the real estate market is flourishing, but it is also constantly changing. As such, investors will find that a little market knowledge goes a long way. In 2018, the trend towards renting out furnished apartments looks set to continue, with renovated properties achieving a high sell-on value. Locations will also remain a key factor in determining property prices. In Berlin, real estate buyers will find that high-demand areas like Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain offer solid opportunities for return on investment (ROI). Alongside Berlin, other cities in former-East Germany are proving increasingly enticing to real estate developers. Leipzig, for example, has a thriving student population and good job prospects as a result of investment from Por
