Egypt: Foreign Investment in Egypt At About Two Billion in First Half of Year

Cairo — Minister of Investment Osama Saleh told Reuters early on Tuesday that direct foreign investments coming into Egypt during the first half of this financial year have reached 2 or 2.1 billion dollars.

Egypt has been economically struggling since an uprising toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011 with political instability and lack of security driving foreign investors and tourists away.
