President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi stated, on Monday, that Egypt has been dealing with its economic crisis, in spite of increased costs in the field of anti-terrorism. The country adopted a national strategic plan for 2030, following the same linear plan as the development agenda for 2030 and the Africa agenda for 2063.
During the BRICS summit in China, Sisi added that Growth Domestic Product (GDP) of the Egyptian economy jumped to 4.3 percent, with the volume of foreign reserves up to $US 36 billion.
Egypt followed the Brazilian model of dealing with inflation, through privatization of companies and expanding public spending on social protection programs. The African country also applied an advanced technological system, taking strategies from Indian models, to count numbers of beneficiaries of subsidies and link them electronically to government subsidy systems.
