Egypt’s Foreign Currency Reserves Rose $12m In Nov: CBE
Source: www.export-egypt.com 12/4/2018

The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) announced that Egypt’s foreign currency reserves rose by $12 million in November to stand at $44.513 billion, compared to $44.501 billion in October.

Before the January 25 Revolution of 2011, Egypt’s foreign exchange reserves stood at roughly $36 billion. They fell to nearly $19 billion until a $12 billion loan was signed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in November 2016.

The flotation of the Egyptian pound and high interest rates helped attract foreign investments for government debt instruments, which reached about $23 billion at the end of March.

Egypt has expanded foreign borrowing in hard currency over the past months to finance the budget deficit and provide US dollars in the market, in an attempt to control the exchange rate and eliminate the black market.
