Egypt, China sign currency swap deal worth USD2.62 Billion

CAIRO, Dec 6 (PNA/Xinhua) -- Egypt and China on Tuesday signed a currency swap agreement worth 18 billion yuan (about USD 2.62 billion) to bolster economic activities in the north African country.

The deal, signed between the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) and the People's Bank of China, will last three years and can be extended upon agreement of both sides, CBE said in a statement.

"The currency swap is a mutually beneficial arrangement between both countries, and mirrored China's support for the Egyptian economic reform program," it added.

The deal also complemented a series of measures taken by Egypt for unleashing the enormous potentials of its economy and instill confidence by bolstering economic activities, the statement added.

It allows the two institutions to exchange payments in one currency for equivalent amounts in the other, to facilitate bilateral trade settlements and provide liquidity support to financial markets.

The deal came as Egypt adopted some measures for economic reform to revive its ailing economy, varying from raising the subsidized fuel prices and floating the Egyptian pound.

Egypt and China celebrate this year the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations and the two countries and high-profile delegations at all levels have been meeting frequently since 2015. (PNA/Xinhua)

John 3:16-18 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
