Egypt External Debt Monitor — External Borrowing Leans Towards Longer Maturities in 3Q2016-17: Pharos Holding released a study concerning egypt’s external debt covering debt ratio comparison between the third quarter of 2016 and of 2017; which assumes that the external debt accumulation will stabilise in the near term, due to the narrowing of Egypt’s current account deficit following the recent reform measures, increased foreign direct investment and the government’s fiscal consolidation.
Egypt’s external debt rose by 9.8%. A percentage of 8.9% of this increase is due to the international bond issuance and medium / long term facilities the government has taken, whilst the remaining increase is caused by banks and the private sector, which rose slightly from USD 10.8 bn in 2QFY2016-17 to USD 11.7 bn in 3QFY2016-17. Pharos Holding also highlights that the short term external debt contribution to total external debt increase recorded only 1.0%, reflecting the positive reaction to the Egyptian economic reform programme.
