Egypt: Awaiting trickle-down

Date: Oct 2019

  • 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.

Saudi Arabia:

Reforms showcase "Davos in the Desert"

  • The kingdom has made significant progress on key areas of its Financial Sector Development Program, especially in terms of small- and medium-sized business financing, capital markets and housing.
  • As well as to its holy places, Saudi Arabia believes tourists will be attracted by new tourism mega projects, the loosening of visa restrictions and social liberalisation.
  • Saudi Arabia continues to present a favourable risk/reward trade-off, and we are looking to see how well the Future Investment Initiative convinces FDI to flow in meaningfully.
