- Egypt’s economic growth outlook remains favourable, but sustained reform implementation will be critical if the benefits are to trickle down to the average citizen.
- Challenges include lower than average FDI, a private sector under pressure, high government debt and delayed privatisation.
- Security challenges also remain, as poverty rates have soared, and unemployment remains high although it has started to decrease.
