Egypt: New Measures to Control Dollar Market

The government has begun to take new measures to ease the pressure on the dollar and reduce its high rate against the Egyptian pound as the increase rate reached about 5% in two weeks.

In the same context, Euro prices went up by about 20 pts in trading exchange companies and that led to a decline in its demand on 12/01/2013.
