The BES was founded in 1990, with the aim, as formally defined in its Constitution, of promoting friendship and bilateral relations between the UK and Egypt, in all fields - cultural, commercial, economic and educational - for the benefit of the community at large. There is an elected Executive Committee comprising a roughly equal number of British and Egyptian members, and an Honorary President who is the serving Egyptian Ambassador in London. The Society sees its main function as being to provide a forum in which British people interested in Egypt and Egyptians living in Britain can meet to further their mutual interests through a variety of social and other activities.
