Analysis by Region - Africa - Egypt



Egyptian authorities passed the IMF’s third review in June and continue to implement a wide range of economic reforms to appease the multilateral organisation and investors alike. The central bank kept monetary policy tight in its recent decision while the pound remains free-floating. Meanwhile, the government’s finances got some reprieve from the Ras El-Hekma deal. In addition, authorities are moving forward to reduce various subsidies with a view to alleviating pressure on fiscal coffers in the future. These policy changes and the ongoing state-owned asset sale programme will go a long way in securing another disbursement when the IMF visits Egypt for its fourth review in September.
