US funds Egyptian economic reforms and public services

26 Jul 18

The US will give $45m to Egypt to help with its economic reforms and give a boost to health, education, governance and agriculture.

Five bilateral agreements were signed between the US Agency for International Development and Egypt this week in Cairo.

Sherry Carlin, USAID mission director to Egypt, said: “Together with the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation, we are building a more prosperous Egypt through sustainable gains in programmes that respond to expressed needs.

“These agreements in health, education, governance and agriculture reflect our strong and enduring partnership and our continuing commitment to work with the government of Egypt towards a brighter economic future for the Egyptian people.”

USAID has given Egypt more than $30bn since 1978, to promote economic stability, growth and reduce poverty.
