International Reserves in Egypt
Egypt - International ReservesEconomic growth appeared to marginally slow in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, which ended in September. The non-oil private sector PMI in the first quarter averaged slightly below the reading for the previous quarter and remained a whisker below the 50-threshold that separates contraction from expansion, largely due to both decreasing output and new orders. On a brighter note, however, bank lending to the private sector continued to grow at a strong year-on-year pace in July, suggesting that fixed investment growth will help cushion any slowdown. Moreover, government spending excluding interest payments increased annually in July; and this trend likely continued throughout Q1, given that the government’s FY 2020 budget is larger than its budget for last year. Meanwhile, anti-government protests that sprung up in various cities in September appear to have fizzled out, reducing risks of economic disruption in the second quarter.
