European Council President Donald Tusk Friday sought to play down expectations ahead of an emergency meeting of eurozone leaders, saying the Monday gathering won't be the "final step" in negotiations over Greeece's bailout. "The purpose of the summit is to make sure that we all understand each other's positions and the possible consequences of our decisions. The summit will not be the final step and there will be no detailed technical negotiations," Tusk said in a letter inviting eurozone leaders to the meeting. More»

The African Development Bank (AfDB)’s board has approved Wednesday a €50.20 million (US$57.3 million) loan for the Egyptian National Drainage programme (NDP). The loan is to boost agricultural production and household income generation. The programme aims to optimise the benefits of irrigation by draining excess irrigation water from agricultural land in order to reduce water logging and soil salinity as well as make more land available for cultivation. Efficient drainage will result in improved soil quality for 125,000 feddans (125,000 acres) covered by the project. This will result in increased crop productivity by 15-21% for selected crops, increased farm income by 40% for a typical one feddan farm, and improved food security and poverty reduction in general. The project will be implemented in five regions of the country: East Delta, Middle Delta, West Delta, Middle Egypt and Upper Egypt. The project components include: (i) Construction and Rehabilitation of Subsurface and Surface Drainage for 125,000 feddans; (ii) Strengthening the capacity of the Egyptian Public Authority for Drainage Projects (EPADP) for Operation and Maintenance; and (iii) Project Coordination and Management. The primary beneficiaries will be the farming households in the project areas. The primary/target beneficiaries will be approximately 125,000 households or 625,000 people, of which 50% are women. Some indirect project beneficiaries include labourers who will benefit from employment on construction of the drainage system. Increased incomes in the project areas will also result in increased off-farm activities where traders and business people will also benefit indirectly. Phases I and II of the NDP were financed by the World Bank, German government-owned development bank (KfW) and the European Investment Bank (EIB). The current third phase of the programme will be financed by the AfDB, Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), KfW and the EU. The project activities for each of the donors are very similar but cover different geographical areas. More»

The State Council’s administrative court has issued a ‘stay of execution of law’ judgement regarding the maximum wage for employees of the banks Banque du Caire, the National Bank of Egypt (NBE), and the United Bank. This judgement may not be the last of its kind, as the administrative court has previously issued a similar judgement for employees at the Housing & Development Bank (HDB) and the Export Development Bank of Egypt‎ (EDBE). There is also a suit before the same court by employees of other banks, on top of which are the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) and the Arab Investment Bank. According to Ruqaya Fayad, legal consultant to the Federation of Egyptian Banks, the administrative courts’ judgements are final and enforceable upon their rendering. But they may be appealed by the government before the Supreme Administrative Court. She added that the government may request a hurried decision by the administrative court to stay the execution of the Supreme Administrative Court’s decisions. In case of the judgement being in favour of the government, this judgement will be stalled pending a final decision on the case. More»

The European Central Bank raised the ceiling on Greece's liquidity assistance from 83 billion to 84.1 billion euros, wire services reported Wednesday citing unnamed sources. Greek banks are currently reliant on a loan program offered by the European Central Bank known as Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA). This is designed to provide credit to financial institutions in the euro zone that are solvent but face "temporary liquidity problems." Last week, the ECB increased its ceiling for ELA to Greek banks by 2.3 billion euros ($2.6 billion) to 83 billion euros, in light of Greek savers continuing to pull out their savings. However, the ECB is at liberty to restrict banks' access to the ELA if operations "interfere with the objectives and tasks of the Eurosystem." This decision would be taken by the ECB's Governing Council and would require a majority of two-thirds of the votes cast. ECB President Mario Draghi and his colleagues have insisted that liquidity will be provided to Greek banks as long as they remain solvent. But if Greece fails to repay the 1.6 billion euros it owes to the International Monetary Fund at the end of this month, this could be in jeopardy. In 2013 Cyprus turned to emergency liquidity assistance after the ECB refused to accept the country's sovereign bonds as collateral. Cyprus too faced warnings that the ECB's Governing Council was prepared to reject the continuation of ELA. The country later entered a rescue program and imposed capital controls to restore solvency to its banks. More»
