Morsi Means Business

China visits marks Egyptian leader’s more balanced foreign policy approach and new economic alliances.

Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi was accompanied by more than 80 Egyptian business people on a trip to Beijing in late August – a clear sign that the new Egyptian leader was intent on enhancing economic relations.

Walking on the red carpet alongside Chinese President Hu Jintao, Morsi’s mind must have been on how China, a global economic power, could help Egypt wade through the economic quagmire that sparked the country’s revolution and brought an end to the three-decade regime of former President Hosni Mubarak. Egypt’s population is hopeful that life will be different under Morsi.
