Egypt’s deputy prime minister is visiting the United States, where he met with World Bank officials. Bassem Sabry recently sat down for a discussion with Hartwig Schafer, the World Bank’s country director for Egypt, Djibouti and Yemen. Sabry: What do you think are the questions that are missing from the discussion on Egypt right now? Schafer: I think the question is, what is the priority right now for Egypt? If we go back two and a half years, the revolution was basically the result of growing exclusion and inequality. And that is still, in my view, the top priority. When you look at GDP growing very steadily, then you compare that to the perception of the people and how they felt about their own wellbeing and livelihood, that wedge overtime - between what the macroeconomic numbers told us and how people perceived how well off they were - that wedge was widening. And I think that was a typical recipe for revolution. When people feel they are much worse off than what the economy tells you, then you have a case of stark exclusion and lack of participation in the economic sphere. What you also had was a lack of participation in the political sphere. This is still the case between different income groups, with regards to geographic distribution in Egypt, and between men and women. So, there are all of these wedges that are widening. What I see as a top priority is the bridging of these gaps, to make the wedges go away. This is what I've put my effort into with my team over the last year, through labour intensive projects that have a strong focus on Upper Egypt. They are what we call “employment opportunities,” for 6 months, they’re not lifetime jobs. More»

Egyptian Banks Company (EBC) is considering the establishment of the Cheques Clearing House (CCH) System for the cheques dominated in foreign currency before the end of the current year, Amwal Al Ghad quoted EBC’s Managing Director as saying on Tuesday. On the sidelines of a symposium held by the Egyptian Credit & Risk Association (ECRA), Mr. Mohamed Bayoumi – the Managing Director at EBC – stated that his firm is seeking to introduce more up-to-date technological applications for the e-payment systems. Egyptian Banks Company (EBC) was established in 1995 with the approval of the Central Bank of Egypt and the Ministry of Finance (MOF). EBC is a bank-owned organization, established to provide a shared facility and to connect all banks providing services in Egypt. Thus, its strategy and role are dictated by the banking sector requirements to serve the ultimate beneficially, mass retail clients.EBC introduced the National Debit Card Brand (123) in 1997, to be accepted throughout the national ATM and Points of Sale networks. EBC also succeeded to expand its acceptance regionally to Qatar, Bahrain and Sudan networks. EBC continues to innovate as it has assumed the role of the national Automated Clearing House (ACH), as part of the Central Bank of Egypt reforming policy, to introduce new electronic payment instrument for regular paper payments such as: utility bill, loan installments, payroll, pensions, taxes,… etc. using direct debit and credit transactions.

HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA) dropped out of talks to settle a European Union antitrust probe into rigging of Euribor lending rates, according to a person familiar with the investigation, as regulators prepare to hand out fines to settling banks as soon as next month. HSBC, Europe’s biggest lender by value, pulled out of the negotiations because the discussions stumbled over the possible size of a fine and liability issues, according to a second person who, like the first person, asked not be named because the talks are confidential. Barclays Plc (BARC), Credit Agricole SA (ACA), Deutsche Bank AG (DBK), JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and Societe Generale SA (GLE) also entered into settlement talks with the European Commission, and at least one of those may have also pulled out of the discussions, the person said. Regulators around the world are investigating whether more than a dozen firms, including Deutsche Bank, colluded to rig various benchmark interest rates to mask their true cost of borrowing. By refusing to settle with the commission in the Euribor probe, banks are giving up the chance of a 10 percent discount in fines in return for admitting that they colluded to manipulate benchmarks.

Egyptian business activity shrank for the 13th month in a row in October but at a much slower rate, suggesting the economy may be improving after months of renewed political turmoil, a survey showed on Tuesday. Most of Egypt has been under nighttime curfew since mid-August, when security forces broke up sit-ins of supporters of President Mohamed Morsi, deposed by the army on July 3 following mass protests against his rule. Hundreds of people have died in clashes between security forces and Morsi supporters. The seasonally adjusted HSBC Egypt Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) for the non-oil private sector rose to 49.5 points in October, up from 44.7 points in September and moving closer to the 50 mark separating growth from contraction. October’s reading marked the slowest contraction since Egyptian business activity began to worsen in October last year, according to the survey of around 350 private sector firms. “It’s the first encouraging reading in a year... The stabilization is happening at a low level, though," Simon Williams, chief Middle East economist at HSBC, said in an accompanying statement. “It will take a long run of month-on-month gains before the losses of the past year will have been reversed. In the meantime, unemployment will remain high and gains in activity will remain contingent on recent relative political calm being maintained.” More»
