More about Egypt

  • ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Egypt, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.

Business

Egypt is one of the poorer North African Mediterranean countries. The gross national income (GNI) is (2017) US $ 3,010 per resident, but it is very unevenly distributed: depending on the calculation, between 17 and 44% of Egyptians live in poverty. The most important economic sectors are agriculture, industry, construction and tourism. The Suez Canal fees and remittances from the Egyptian guest workers continue to represent significant income. With the exception of industry, the construction sector and agriculture, which are geared towards the domestic market, these sources of income are extremely dependent on the outside world and subject to strong fluctuations. In addition, the unstable domestic political situation is placing a heavy burden on further economic development. Around 28% of those in employment work in the agricultural sector, 24% in the industrial sector and 48% in the service sector. The unemployment rate (2015) is officially 12.9%; However, estimates are over 30%, especially in the case of women and youth unemployment. The inflation rate (2015) is 11.0%, the national debt is 89.0% of the Gross domestic product (GDP).

The more recent Egyptian economic development is characterized by the restructuring of a previously highly subsidized welfare economy with a Nassist character in the direction of a so-called free market economy. The economic opening policy was under President Sadat initiated in the 1970s. Triggered by the collapse in oil prices in 1986 and due to high government spending, the growth phase in Egypt came to an abrupt end in the second half of the 1980s. The recession was exacerbated by limited development aid and reduced capital flows. Unemployment rose, migrant worker remittances fell, and real wages fell. Despite massive austerity measures and efforts to liberalize the market (e.g. by reducing subsidies), the budget deficit rose and foreign debt reached a new record in 1989 at US $ 51 billion. Against this background, economic reforms seemed inevitable.

The implementation of structural adjustment measures was decided in 1991; and it was only in connection with the Second Gulf War that prompted the World Bank and IMF to grant the Egyptian government favorable financial conditions for supporting the Western alliance (in particular, a cancellation of around 50% of all foreign debts). Since then, the neoliberal reform program linked to it has relied on the dismantling of state interventions. This implied inter alia. Release of exchange rates and interest rates, lifting of price controls, dismantling of import and export restrictions, laws to encourage private investment, privatization of state-owned companies, restriction of state subsidies and a new tax system.

The most important development problems that Egypt has to cope with are, besides the external dependency of the economy and an overburdened public sector, above all the poverty of large parts of the rapidly growing population. With the privatization policy and the dismantling of subsidies, income disparities are increasing noticeably. The slump in the tourism industry due to political unrest, falling revenues in the oil industry and the decline in private investments have so far prevented the economy from stabilizing.

Foreign trade: The foreign trade balance is negative (import value 2015: 74.4 billion US $; export value: 22.0 billion US $). The deficit can only be partially offset by remittances from Egyptian guest workers living abroad and by services (especially tourism and the Suez Canal). The main export products are petroleum and petroleum products, textiles, chemical products and agricultural products. The main imports are food, chemical products, crude oil and machinery. The most important trading partners are the USA, China, Italy, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

Industry

Due to its small agricultural area, Egypt has long been striving to expand its industry. Under the policy of President A. as-Sadat, who pursued an opening to the West, the focus of economic planning shifted from promoting import-substituting industries to supporting export-oriented economic sectors. The focus is on the food and textile industries, metal production and processing, and oil refineries. Another focus of industrial policy is the development of new industrial cities in the desert in order to protect the scarce agricultural resources and the densely populated urban centers such as Cairo and Giza. The construction industry is recording high growth rates due to the strong population growth. Check health-beauty-guides to see The Best of Egypt.
