Basel El Hini, Chairperson and Managing Director of Misr Holding Insurance Company, said the group is implementing a unique business strategy to overcome the effects of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
He added that the group and its subsidiaries are dealing with the crises and changes in Egypt by undertaking flexible new visions and policies.
El Hini said that the holding company’s budget, and those of its subsidiaries, had been prepared before the current crisis took place. It had been hoped that the strong upward trend would continue for the group as a whole, but the ongoing coronavirus crisis and its expected economic consequences will likely negatively affect these expectations.
He added that, despite this, the group is determined to face the challenges and move forward with the implementation of a new strategy that is the first of its kind since the group’s establishment. This will see the holding company and its subsidiaries work towards completing institutional development, undergo digital and technological transformation and advance their human capabilities.
El Hini added that that the group is proud of its human capital, which is the main pillar to achieving the strategy’s ambitious goals.
