Credit ratings provider Moody's expects "only limited credit-positive effects" for Egypt in the current fiscal year, in light of the expansion of the Suez Canal, it said in a statement Thursday. Moody's stressed in a statement that the expansion's support to Egypt's credit quality will be through increased current account receipts and government revenues. "The degree of support [for Egypt's credit quality] will depend on an acceleration in global trade growth, which seems unlikely to materialise quickly," the statement added. Egypt inaugurated a project dubbed by the government as the "New Suez Canal" last Thursday, August 6, 2015. It involves digging a 35 –kilometres-long canal parallel to the current Suez Canal, to minimise the amount of time ships spend crossing the canal. Additionally, the Suez Canal was made deeper and wider to admit larger ships. The Suez Canal Authority says the deepening of the canal and drilling a parallel junction to it would double the Suez Canal revenues from $5.3 billion to $13.3 billion in 2023. The authority expects around 97 ships to daily cross the canal after the expansion by 2023, while the number of ships daily crossing the canal before the project was launched was nearly 49 ships. A graph in Moody's statement expects that with the historical average growth, Suez Canal revenues will register at just below $5.6 billion in 2023. For revenues to reach the projected $13.3 billion, Moody's said Egypt would need a 10 percent increase in world trade growth. Moody's said it expects Egypt's external current account balance to post a deficit of nearly 3 percent of the gross domestic product in the current fiscal year. It nevertheless referred to the domestic financing of the "New Suez Canal" project, saying it will "shield" net international reserves. The Egyptian government collected from citizens $8.17 billion (64 billion Egyptian pounds) within 8 working days last September to fund the project, by issuing five-year investment certificates at an interest rate of 12 percent.

The move by China's central bank on Tuesday to change the mechanism for setting the daily reference rate for the yuan "appears a welcome step" as it should allow market forces to have a greater role in determining the exchange rate, the International Monetary Fund said on Wednesday. "Greater exchange rate flexibility is important for China as it strives to give market-forces a decisive role in the economy and is rapidly integrating into global financial markets. More»

The Bank of England’s Egyptian-born most senior female official has been tipped to take charge of Britain’s financial watchdog after the ousting last month of the regulator’s chief executive over accusations that he was too hard on the City. Dame Nemat Shafik, a deputy governor of the Bank of England, is understood to be among those being considered in an international search for a replacement for Martin Wheatley as head of the Financial Conduct Authority, The Times UK reported. Shafik, is the Deputy Governor of the Bank of England since 1 August 2014 with responsibility for markets and banking and a Member of the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee. She was the Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, a position she held from 2011 to 2014. She previously served as Permanent Secretary of the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) beginning in March 2008. An economist by training, she has held a number of senior positions in international organisations as well as spoken, taught and published extensively on globalisation, emerging markets and private investment, international development, the Middle East and Africa, and the environment. Prior to coming to DFID in 2004, Shafik became the youngest ever Vice President at the World Bank at the age of 36. In World Bank, she was responsible for improving the performance of a private sector and infrastructure portfolio of investments worth about US$50 billion. She also led a revitalization of the Bank’s infrastructure business through product innovation and created global groups to provide both policy advice, debt and equity investments jointly with the International Finance Corporation in the areas of oil, gas and mining, telecommunications, small and medium enterprises, project finance and guarantees. The Egyptian-born economist is a British and US national. More»

There is strong support at the IMF for joining a new bailout package for Greece but the fund will not decide whether to participate until autumn, Sweden's representative to its executive board told a newspaper. The International Monetary Fund has been part of Greece's first two financial rescues, but doubts have been raised about its commitment to a third package. The European Commission said on Friday the Fund was participating fully in bailout talks between Greece and its international lenders that started in the last week of July. A day earlier the Financial Times, citing a summary of an IMF board meeting, said the Fund could not officially join the talks until after Greece agreed comprehensive reforms. Thomas Ostros, who is an alternate - or replacement - director on the fund's 24-member board, said there was "strong (IMF) support for being part of a new loan program, but it will take time," according to an interview in Thursday's edition of Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter.
