What we’re tracking this week

The Transport Ministry will announce its new pricing scheme for railway tickets “within days,” Al Masry Al Youm reports. Transport Minister Hisham Arafat had said last week that ticket prices would climb 20-25% over multiple phases. Meanwhile, sources from the National Railway Authority (NRA) said the new prices for overnight trains came into effect yesterday, with prices ranging from EGP 350- 550 for Egyptians, and USD 70-110 for foreigners.

We’ll be announcing the results of our end-of-year survey on Thursday. We asked you to help us gauge how well business went in 2017, what the biggest challenges of the year were, and where you see FX rates stabilizing, among other things. 25 people participants will get our giveaway package consisting of Enterprise swag and our first-ever Enterprise-branded batch of coffee.
