Egypt's Competition Authority (ECA) has launched Sunday its twinning project worth €1.2 billion (US$1.3 billion) with the European Union. The project aims at developing the technical, administrative, and institutional capacities of the Egyptian Competition Authority by providing European technical expertise and offering peer-to-peer learning opportunities with officials and technical experts of the German Cartel Office and the Lithuanian Competition Council. The launch event stressed the significance of a robust competition law and policy – coupled by strong enforcement capacity – for national development. Mona El-Garf, Chairperson of the Egyptian Competition Authority, pointed out that the twinning project is one of the technical instruments provided by the EU funded Support to the Association Agreement Programme to develop the capacities of the Egyptian institutions in line with their EU counterparts. Focus of this EU funded project is to enhance the capacity of the ECA to foster an effective competition law enforcement system in Egypt within the framework of a free-market economy, and in line with commitments entered into within the Egypt/EU Association Agreement. Furthermore, El-Garf said the project includes three main components, focused on; enhancing the efficiency and the effectiveness of the legal framework of competition policies and relations with other regulatory authorities, raising the efficiency and effectiveness of the institutional framework and human resources of the ECA staff, and contributing to awareness raising on the competition law and policies.

Egypt's annual core inflation declined to 7.19 percent in April, compared to 7.21 percent in March, the central bank of Egypt said on Sunday. The core consumer price index inched up by 0.23 percent in April, nearly one third of its 0.76 percent hike in March. The overall consumer price index also rose in April by 0.11 percent, also a fraction of the increase in March, when it rose by 1.55 percent. The core value is calculated by discounting goods whose prices may fluctuate, such as food products. Earlier today, the Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics announced that there was a decline in urban inflation to 11 percent in April, a decrease from March's 11.5 percent. Inflation increased last summer after the government reduced petroleum subsidies and introduced new taxes in July 2014, hiking fuel prices by up to 78 percent. The inflation rate peaked last October, standing at 11.8 percent. More»

Egyptians who do not acquire fuel smart cards will not be able to obtain subsidised fuel from petrol stations from 15 June, Amr Badawi, the deputy minister of finance, announced Sunday. The introduction of unlimited smart cards aim to curb fuel smuggling, Badawi said, adding that once the market is regulated the subsidies will reach those in need and will eventually solve the budget deficit. All distribution companies are obliged to request smart cards from both public and private vehicles, he said adding that tuk-tuks, or rickshaws, and agricultural machinery and vehicles will soon be included in the new system.
