Jihad Azour explained ( about Jihad Azour ) : “We expect a gradual improvement in Egypt’s economic growth during FY2021/2022 at 2.5 percent, and at 5.7 percent in FY2022/2023", said Azour.

Jihad Azour explained ( about Jihad Azour ) : “We expect a gradual improvement in Egypt’s economic growth during FY2021/2022 at 2.5 percent, and at 5.7 percent in FY2022/2023", said Azour.

In this regard, we expect Egypt’s initial budget surplus to restore its pre-pandemic levels in 2021 or even will be slightly better than these levels. This will be used in expanding social protection programmes and meeting the countries finance needs” External link

Jihad Azour explained ( about Jihad Azour ) : “We expect a gradual improvement in Egypt’s economic growth during FY2021/2022 at 2.5 percent, and at 5.7 percent in FY2022/2023", said Azour. This improvement depends on the continuance of the financial support policies the government has already adopted since the onset of the pandemic and the achievement of the public finance stability. In this regard, we expect Egypt’s initial budget surplus to restore its pre-pandemic levels in 2021 or even will be slightly better than these levels. This will be used in expanding social protection programmes and meeting the countries finance needs” External link
