The visit, organized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, included a personal envoy from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Rights groups criticized the visit’s timing as rewarding Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi at a time when his government is increasingly cracking down on dissent, stifling critics and imprisoning opponents.

Conference members rebuffed the criticism, with one saying: “Prosperous economies are good for the citizens.”

Those attending also applauded el-Sissi’s government for tackling the country’s structural economic problems which have long kept private businesses away from one of the Middle East’s largest markets.
