The Prime Minister comments on the hard currency crisis

Egypt succeeded this morning in repaying dollar-denominated Eurobonds worth $500 million. The issuance of these bonds dates back to 2019, with an interest rate of 4.5%. At the same time, the cost of insuring Egypt’s sovereign debt continued to decline, with one-year contracts reaching 11.64% at the close of trading on Friday, compared to 13.45% on November 10, which is the lowest level since the end of last August, according to data seen by Al Borsa, and the cost declined. In 5-year contracts, the rate reached 14.12% on Friday, compared to 15.58% on November 10.

The cost of hedging against the Egyptian government’s debt risks is declining despite the recent downgrade of Egypt’s rating by credit rating institutions. However, the presence of many investment projects in Egypt helps improve Egypt’s economic outlook.

Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly said that the currency crisis that Egypt is going through is almost over and that what is most important is what will follow it.
