about egypt.

Officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, Egypt is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and the southwest corner of Asia. Egypt borders the Gaza Strip to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east and the south, Sudan to the south, and Libya to the west.

With over 95 million inhabitants, Egypt is one of the most populous countries in the Arab world, and the 15th most populated country in the world. The majority of Egyptians live near the banks of the Nile River, where the country’s only arable land is found. About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with most spread across the densely populated centers of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.

The country is considered to be a regional power in North Africa, the Middle East, and the Muslim world, and a middle power worldwide. Egypt's economy is one of the largest and most diversified in the Middle East, and is projected to become one of the largest in the 21st century.


Until recently, the economy of Egypt was a highly centralized planned economy focused on import substitution under President Gamal Abdel Nasser. The country has a stable, mixed economy enjoying average growth, averaging 3–5% in the past quarter-century, and is primarily dependent on agriculture, media, petroleum imports, natural gas, automobiles, consumer goods, and tourism. Egypt has developed an energy market based on coal, oil, natural gas, and hydro power, although is a net importer of oil.

Since 2000, structural reforms, including fiscal, monetary policies, taxation, privatization and new business legislations, have helped Egypt move towards a more market-oriented economy and prompted increased foreign investment.

recent reforms.

The Egyptian Government has embarked on an ambitious and recent reform program, aimed at restoring macroeconomic stability and sustainable public finances. These measures target rising imbalances that led to high public debt, a widening current account deficit, and declining official reserves.

Since 2016, the Egyptian Parliament has approved several measures to improve the business climate such as less red tape in industrial licensing, and easier access to financing for small and medium-sized enterprises. These measures should create more new jobs and help alleviate unemployment, which is particularly concentrated among women and young people. In addition, the Egyptian Government is working to:

  • Flexible exchange rate regime
  • Reduction of budget deficit
  • Energy subsidy reform
  • The inclusion of women and youth into the workforce
  • Higher growth through wide-ranging structural reforms


Egypt’s young population currently represents both an opportunity and a challenge for the country’s future. The opportunity lies in its young human capital that could become a significant factor of the nation’s growth and development, while the challenge lies in the country’s ability to develop and fully utilize its available workforce.

Egypt's labor force, in 2012, was estimated at 27.1 million compared to approximately 25.4 million in 2009, of which women constitute 22 to 23%. In the same year, 25.84% of the employees in Egypt were active in the agricultural sector, 25.09% in industry and 49.07% in the services sector.

In 2017 the unemployment rate decreased to 11.9%, from an all-time high of 13.4% in 2013, and a record low of 8.1% in 1999. High rates of unemployment are noted among highly educated job seekers, who experience low rates of return on education.
