Egypt’s central bank repaid about $2 billion in debt to international bodies in December, state-run MENA news agency reported Friday. "Of the total, 1.2 billion U.S. dollars were paid back to the African Export-Import Bank and about 920 million to other international bodies," Rami Abul-Naga, a deputy to the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) governor, told MENA. In early January next year, the CBE will pay back 700 million dollars out of the total debt of 3.2 billion dollars to the Paris Club, he said. The Paris Club is a group of officials from major creditor countries whose role is to find solutions to the payment difficulties of debtor countries. On Wednesday, the CBE received the first 2.03-billion-dollar disbursal of the second tranche of a 12-billion-dollar loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), bringing the total amount Egypt has received to 6.08 billion dollars. In November 2016, Egypt accepted the three-year IMF loan program tied to its ambitious economic reforms such as subsidy cuts, tax hikes, value-added taxes, as well as the devaluation of its local currency.

Sudan and Saudi Arabia have agreed to re-establish banking relations, the official Sudanese news agency SUNA reported Thursday, a move that may help restore confidence in Sudan’s economy after the lifting of U.S. economic sanctions. The agreement, which will allow for banking transactions between the two countries, came after meetings between the Sudanese central bank governor and the Saudi Monetary Authority governor in Riyadh, SUNA reported on Thursday. Representatives of major Saudi banks attended the meetings, signalling approval of the move to allow Sudanese users to open accounts at their banks. Sudanese central bank governor Hazem Abdelqader said he expected banking transactions with Saudi Arabia in the next year to reach $600 million. In October, the United States lifted 20-year-old sanctions against Sudan, whose economy has suffered since its south seceded in 2011, taking with it three-quarters of oil output, the country’s main source of foreign currency. The Sudanese pound has plummeted against the dollar since Washington lifted its trade embargo, encouraging traders to step up imports and putting pressure on scarce hard currency. Sudan said earlier this week it would devalue its currency to 18 pounds to the U.S. dollar starting next year from a rate of 6.7 that has drained formal channels and fuelled a black market. Thursday’s announcement came after the International Monetary Fund called on Sudan to lift its peg on the pound and cut subsidies to attract investment and boost growth. More»

Egypt selected five banks to arrange its next dollar-denominated Eurobond issuance, Finance Minister Amr el-Garhy said Thursday. The banks are J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Citibank, HSBC and First Abu Dhabi Bank, Garhy said. The dollar-denominated Eurobonds will take place by the end of January 2018 and will be worth $4 billion, Garhy added. He confirmed on the increased confidence in the Egyptian economy after the success in implementing the reform programme, adding that the five banks were selected out 20 international banks that have applied to arrange the issuance. Egypt issued $7 billion in Eurobonds sales in January and May 2017 on the global bond market, both of which were oversubscribed, according to the Ministry of Finance. Egypt had embarked on a bold economic reform program that included the introduction of taxes, such as the Value added tax (VAT), and cutting energy subsidies. The country has floated its currency in November 2016, after which it clinched a $12 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Egypt is to receive a fourth disbursal of that loan, worth $2 billion, in June or July, the Finance Ministry said, bringing the total it has received to $8 billion. The IMF agreed this month to the third disbursal, also worth $2 billion. More»

The Central Bank of Egypt kept its interest rates unchanged in its Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) on Thursday, setting the overnight deposit rate and the overnight lending rate at 18.75 percent and19.75 percent, respectively. In its previous meeting on November 16, the MPC also kept its interest rates unchanged. Economists and investment banks have expected the CBE to keep rates unchanged. They said that since the CBE did not cut interest rates in its last November meeting despite cooling inflation, it was likely to follow a similar conservative approach in its meeting today. Egypt’s annual urban consumer price inflation fell to 26.7 percent in November, from 30.8 percent in October, according to the official statistics agency CAPMAS. Finance Minister Amr el-Garhy said that inflation is expected to drop down to 20 percent in January and to 13-14 percent by August 2018. Inflation has soared since the flotation of the Egyptian pound in late 2016 and it peaked in July reaching 30 percent. However, it started easing afterwards. Meanwhile, other economists expected an easing CBE approach, driven by the lower inflation rates registered in November, which should have encouraged the CBE to cut interest rates. They expected the first cut to take place this month at 100 basis points to hit 17.75 percent. The CBE had increased interest rates by a total of seven percent since the flotation of the Egyptian pound in November 2016 in a bid to curb inflation. More»
