Egypt, IMF reach agreement on $2 bln loan instalment – IMF statement


Egypt has reached a staff-level agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for an instalment of about $2 billion more from a three-year, $12 billion loan programme, the IMF said in a statement on Friday.

The payment, which is still subject to IMF executive board approval, will bring total disbursements under the program to about $6 billion. Egypt is pushing through an ambitious economic reform package as part of the loan deal.
