Egypt net foreign reserves rise to $42.524b after Eurobond sale

Egypt’s foreign reserves rose to $42.524 billion (Dh156 billion) at the end of February from $38.209 billion at the end of January, the central bank said on Sunday, helped by a recent Eurobond sale. Cairo’s foreign reserves have been climbing since the country secured a $12 billion three-year International Monetary Fund loan programme in 2016 as part of efforts to woo foreign investors and revive its ailing economy. Reserves had dropped to about $19 billion before Egypt signed the three-year IMF deal, with Egypt floating the currency and lifting capital controls to lure back investors.

Egypt last month raised $4 billion in a dollar-denominated Eurobond sale to help plug its financing deficit and boost dollar holdings.
