Arab Republic of Egypt and the IMF
Updated January 23, 2017

On August 11, 2016 the IMF announced it had reached a staff-level agreement with authorities in Egypt for a three-year Extended Fund Facility (EFF) in the amount of SDR 8.5966 billion (422 percent of quota or about US$12 billion). This agreement is subject to approval by the IMF's Executive Board, which is expected to consider Egypt's request in the coming weeks. The EFF supports the authorities' comprehensive economic reform program to restore macroeconomic stability and to support strong, sustainable and job-rich growth. The program, once approved by the Executive Board, aims to improve the functioning of the foreign exchange markets, bring down the budget deficit and government debt, and to raise growth and create jobs, especially for women and young people. It also aims to strengthen the social safety net to protect the vulnerable groups during the process of adjustment.
