Egypt Signs Expanded $3.2 Billion Financing Deal With Lenders

EGYPT

 

Egypt signed an expanded $3.2 billion financing deal with foreign banks, the central bank governor said, as it continues to bolster foreign reserves and prepare for about $14 billion of foreign debt repayments in 2018.

 

The repurchase transaction, signed in November 2016 for one year, was increased from $2 billion, Tarek Amer said on Monday in an interview, without saying whether the duration of the deal has changed. Under the arrangement, Egypt’s Finance Ministry issued $4 billion in bonds on the Irish Stock Exchange last year, with the central bank buying them to use partly as collateral for the repurchase agreement.

 

Egypt was able to boost its foreign currency reserves to about $37 billion since it floated the pound in November 2016 to end a dollar crunch that was crippling the economy. But the increase was coupled by heavy external borrowing, with the country’s foreign debt rising to $79 billion in June from $55.8 billion a year earlier. Egypt’s banking system has received a total of $80 billion since floating the pound, Amer said.

 

The country is set to repay $14 billion in debt principal and interest in 2018, according to the latest available central bank data. Some of Egypt’s debtors, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, have agreed to extend the repayment for their debt maturing next year, local media reported.

 

The central bank has said the increase in foreign debt was fueled by “low cost, long term” funding, while Finance Ministry officials have repeatedly said external exposure remains within safe levels. External debt made up 34 percent of gross domestic product in June compared with 17 percent a year earlier, while servicing foreign debt made up 13 percent of annual current receipts, up from 10 percent.
