Transcript of Egypt Imperialism
They also believed that if they did not step in they would lose access to the Suez canal and the natural resources of the Egyptian land.

•Great Britain acquired Egypt as a result of the Berlin Conference. This was a meeting in which European powers discussed the distribution of African land within the European nations. The partitioning split up Africa into many different territories which blurred ethnic boundaries between African tribes. This caused war between tribes and other social problems.
•Egypt was desirable for Great Britain because it was a key part of the spice and trade routes between India and Asia. Their control over Egypt gave them easy access to these routes and created more efficient trading. It also allowed better communication between colonies.
•Great Britain obtained oil, cotton, and textiles from Egypt. They were able to use these materials in their own production of goods.
•The British turned to Egypt for their supply of cotton. The British encouraged Egypt to only grow the one cash crop, cotton, though doing this helped the British, it made the Egyptians have to rely on their cotton industry. This reliance on cotton and no longer growing food crops led to famine later on in history.
•One reason the British became involved with colonizing Egypt was to protect their claim on the Suez canal, which was a water way that connected the Mediterranean and the Red Seas. Who Imperialized Egypt - and why? How did they take over? What effects did this hold over the people involved, the community/nation, or the world?
