Mohamed Maait headlines the talk shows on 9 June 2021

Finance Minister Mohamed Maait has the Enterprise talk show section all to himself this morning after he dialled in to Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 25:14) and Yahduth fi Masr (watch, runtime: 2:13 | 3:08) last night to talk about the economy. Among the highlights was Maait’s suggestion that we could receive the final tranche of our IMF loan later this month — more on that at the top of this morning’s issue.

Also worth noting:

The economic reforms are not over: The government announced in April a new, three-year program of structural reforms designed to support private sector-led economic growth and capitalize on the past seven-year economic reforms. This will help the economy eke out pre-covid growth rates, create sustainable growth and help overcome repercussions due to the pandemic, Maait told Yahduth fi Masr’s Sherif Amer. Economic reforms alongside social protection policies and programs aimed at improving people’s quality of life through key sectors such as education, transport, agriculture, health and social welfare will boost Egypt’s economic performance and further enhance its position among its peers, the minister said.
