Egypt’s PM wants to boost private sector investments

EGYPTIAN Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly said he wanted the private sector to account for 65% of all investment in the country within three years, up from around 30% at present.

He also said in a press conference that the government aims to decrease total debt to 75% of the gross domestic product in the next four years from 86% currently, and the budget deficit to 5% from 6.2%.

Madbouly said that the country aims to achieve a primary surplus of about 1.5% in the current fiscal year that ends in June 2022, which would rise to 2% of GDP over the next four years.
