The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) paid back around $700 million in debt to the Paris Club this week, the CBE announced Tuesday. The CBE had made another payment to the Paris Club worth another $700 million in July 2017. Paris Club is an informal group of official creditors who provide debt treatment to countries undertaking economic reforms. Egypt met its obligations to Paris Club creditors in 2017, a CBE source told state news agency MENA last week. In 2017, Egypt repaid around $30 billion in foreign debt and is set to pay back over $12 billion in 2018, MENA reported last week. External debt stood at $79.03 billion at the end of the 2016/17 fiscal year, up from $55.76 billion at the end of the previous fiscal year, according to CBE data. Egypt's foreign currency reserves reached $36.723 billion in November, exceeding the record $36 billion on the eve of the 2011 revolution. Egypt has been borrowing to plug its budget deficit, which decreased to 9.5 percent of GDP in the first nine months of 2016/2017, down from 11.5 percent the same period the previous year. More»

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday called on central bank governor Haruhiko Kuroda to keep up efforts to reflate the economy, but added he was undecided on whether to reappoint Kuroda for another five-year term.Kuroda was handpicked by Abe to take the helm of the central bank in 2013 to deploy a massive stimulus program - part of the premier’s “Abenomics” reflationary policies - that helped boost growth but failed to drive up inflation to the bank’s target of 2 percent. Abe also said the government would continue to work with the central bank to boost growth, so that he could declare an official end to deflation at the earliest date possible. “Governor Kuroda has met my expectations with job availability at a 43-year high,” Abe said on public broadcaster NHK. “I want him to keep up his efforts. But I haven’t made up my mind,” on who should succeed Kuroda when his term ends in April, he added. Many analysts see a good chance that Kuroda will be reappointed when the government selects successors to him and his two deputies in coming months, decisions that need parliament’s approval. Abe said Japan’s economy was showing signs of emerging from deflation, with a tightening job market pushing up wages. “We’ll deploy all available policies so that we can declare an end to deflation at the earliest date possible,” Abe said. “It might not necessarily be this year, but the government and the BOJ must fulfill their responsibilities,” he added, so as to ensure conditions to bring about an end to deflation. The government looks at several factors, such as inflation data and the output gap, in determining whether the economy is sustainably out of deflation. Some policymakers are keen to declare an end to deflation, which would help Abe argue his policies succeeded in reflating the economy. But doing so could also give the BOJ justification to withdraw crisis-mode stimulus, some analysts say. More»

Egypt’s Export Development Bank has provided around $1.5 billion in letters of credit to fund trade since the country floated its currency in early November last year, its Chairman Mervat Sultan said. Sultan told Amwal Al Ghad that the bank has collected so far a sum of $700 million from the clients. The bank has also launched a number of saving certificates including a triple certificate with a return up to 19.75 percent, which succeeded in attracting an amount of 700 million Egyptian pounds in early days of launch. Export Development Bank aims to increase its personal financing portfolio to an amount between 750 million pounds and one billion pounds during 2018. It is currently organising to launch products for personal loans and credit cards. The bank is also putting the small and medium enterprises a priority, thus it aims to increase the SMEs portfolio that registered 2.8 billion pounds by 35 percent during 2018, Sultan added. The bank is set to open five new branches during 2018 in Aswan, Beni Sue, Suez, the fifth Settlement, and Hurghada, increasing its network to 35 branches spread all over Egypt. More»
