Egyptian Cabinet Spokesman Ambassador Hossam Al-Qaweesh underlined that the recent economic reform decisions, in terms of reducing energy subsidy, came out of keenness on the nation's best interest and without any foreign dictations or pressures. Qaweesh ruled out that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has any role in the issuance of these decisions, noting that the government has never discussed or sought to obtain a loan from the IMF. The Ambassador noted that the step to amend the energy prices was late for 40 years, noting that this isn't an easy measure and reflects the government's courage and that its hands are not shaking. Qaweesh also noted that the reform decisions were supported by President Abdel Fattah al Sisi, noting that their impact will be manifested soon in the launching of a number of services and development projects. He explained that Egypt's credit rating starts to rise and was positively reflected on the bourse performance last week. It will also encourage investors to pump more funds in projects inside Egypt and are designed to offer thousands of jobs. The Spokesman made clear that this reform step is not against the poor, but rather designed to serve them. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb gave directives to services sectors ministers to be present in various governorates for one day on a weekly basis, given that the governors will work out reports on the problems facing their governorates and proposals to handle them.

Recently announced fuel price hikes are an important step toward reducing subsidies that contribute to Egypt's substantial fiscal deficit - a key rating weakness, according to Fitch Ratings' latest report. Tackling subsidies is a key way of reducing Egypt's budget deficit, which Fitch Ratings estimate at 12.1% of GDP in 2013/14 (to end June), Reuters reported. A double-digit fiscal deficit in each of the last three years has pushed government debt to over 90% of GDP from 76.6% at end-FY11 and contributed to a series of downgrades to Egypt's ratings. The subsidy bill, which is dominated by fuel products, accounted for about one-third of total spending in FY13, or 12% of GDP. The price hikes, which range between 40%-78% for petrol and 175% for natural gas, follow the adoption of a tighter budget on June 29. The 2014/15 budget targets a deficit of 10% of GDP, down from the draft budget's 12.2% after President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's intervention resulted in a 1% of GDP cut in budgeted subsidy spending and a 1.5% of GDP rise in budgeted tax revenues. Subsidy spending is to be held at the FY13 level and tax revenues are budgeted to rise by 26%. Several new revenue-raising measures have been introduced, including a capital gains tax. The budget maintains a conservative assumption for grants. Only pledged grants that have yet to be drawn are included in the budget, totalling EGP 23 billion (USD 3.2 billion), compared to an official estimate of EGP 117 billion for FY13. Fitch assumes that support, primarily from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and UAE, will remain forthcoming and anticipates grants to be well above the budgeted level. Concerns about political stability have prevented previous administrations from tackling the cost of subsidies. The mandate secured by President Sisi following his election victory in May and the effective repression of much of the opposition means the political environment is more conducive to fiscal consolidation. Only isolated protests in response to the price hikes were reported. However, serious political tensions remain and the expected return of inflation to double-digits (from 8.2% in May) may cause social strains. Fitch reaffirmed its 'B-' long-term foreign currency rating for Egypt on June 27, noting that "material progress on fiscal consolidation" was one factor that could lead to a positive rating action.

An international conference to help Egypt through its economic troubles is expected to begin by early 2015, said Egyptian Planning Minister Ashraf al-Araby, who preferred to name the event 'Friends of Egypt' instead of the 'donors'. After former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi won Egyptian presidential election, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah called for an international effort to raise funds for Egypt’s battered economy through holding an international aid conference. The conference is expected to lure more Arab Gulf investments in Egypt. The conference is expected to lure more Gulf businessmen and financial institutions to pump new investments in Egypt. In this respect, al-Araby stated that the government is planning to organise the event before the end of the current year or by early 2015 at maximum, seeking to prepare a package of new development and investment projects to be offered during the conference.
