Egypt expects $13-15
Cairo - Egyptian Finance Minister Amr El Garhy said on Monday his country was expecting foreign direct investment to increase to $13-15 billion in the 2017-18 fiscal year, after a currency flotation in November revived foreign interest.
Garhy told Reuters by telephone that Egypt's 2017-18 budget would assume an oil price of $55-57 per barrel.
Garhy told a local television station on Sunday night that the budget would be presented to parliament by the end of March.
Some $3.5 billion in foreign investment has flowed into Egyptian Treasury bills and bonds since the currency was floated in November, losing about half its value.
