High-ranking meetings dominate Egypt’s airwaves yesterday

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s sit-down with AmCham Executive Vice President Myron Brilliant to talk US-Egypt cooperation earned some airtime with Al Hayah Al Youm’s Khaled Abu Bakr (watch, runtime: 9:16). We have the story in Diplomacy + Foreign Trade, below.

Gov’t studying deliberate deflation? Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly discussed during a meeting yesterday with the ministers of supply, trade and industry, and finance allowing prices to fall on the back of the strengthening of the EGP against the USD, Masaa DMC’s Ramy Radwan reported (watch, runtime: 1:13). Radwan phoned Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce boss Ahmed Wakeel, who said the government will oversupply the market “until prices balance out” (watch, runtime: 6:48).

On a lighter note, Dahab getting some love in a recent Forbes contributor article for being “a secret paradise for adventure travelers” from the world over was the topic of discussion on Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 4:08).
