“Information and Discussion Round on the Current Economic Situation in Egypt”

 AACC – February 9, 2011
 
On Wednesday, 9 February 2011, the Austro-Arab Chamber of Commerce invited its members and interested partners to an “Information and Discussion Round on the Current Economic Situation in Egypt”, with expert speakers and some 30 people – businessmen and representatives of Austrian companies – participating with much interest. The event was convened in response to the recent developments in Egypt to provide AACC members with a special information service in a time of uncertain developments in economic and commercial relations.
 
President Dr. Schenz at his introduction to the discussion round
 
“Positive approach in times of economic challenge”
During his welcome speech, Dr. Richard Schenz, President of the AACC and Vice-President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber explained the role of the AACC to coordinate and consolidate the commercial and economic relations between the Arab Countries and Austria. He stressed on the Chamber’s mission to positively support investors and entrepreneurs both from the Austrian and Arab side and confirmed that the convening of the discussion round was another initiative to serve this mission.
  
“Egypt plays a key role for stability in the Middle East”
In his introductory report to the topic Dipl.Ing. Mouddar Khouja, Secretary General of the AACC, presented the pillars of Egyptian economy. He emphasised Egypt’s key role for stability, peace, progress and improvement for the Arab and Middle Eastern region.
Speaking about facts and figures, SG Khouja elaborated on Egypt’s role for gas reserves and production; he also explained the economic impact of tourism as a main source of national income for the country, where some 12 million tourists visiting Egypt spend about 11 billion Dollars annually. The Egyptian Suez Canal and its strategically important location to connect the tradelane between Europe and Asia was mentioned as another major factor for income to Egypt with some 5 billion Dollars per year. Eventually, SG Khouja mentioned the SUMED pipeline, a strategically highly important pipeline to transfer 1.1 million barrels oil daily from the Arab Gulf region to Europe, and further, to the United States.
 
“Hope that stability will return soon to Egypt”
Dr. Kurt Altmann, Economic Delegate at the Austrian Trade Commission in Cairo, described in his statements the history of development since the beginning of demonstrations, and shed light on both the economic and social impacts in the past days and weeks. He carefully expressed his hope that the economic and social stability will return soon to Egypt and was somehow positive about this taking place rather soon and added that his tentative plan to travel back to Egypt on upcoming Sunday, 13 February to take up his office activities again.

Members & partners of the AACC participating at the event
 
“No complaints from Austrian investment losses in Egypt”
Mag. Silvia Maca, Department Head of Export Financing at the Austrian Ministry of Finance confirmed in her statement that so far there were no reports about the occurrence of losses for Austrian investment projects in Egypt that are financed through the soft loan system. Maca pointed out that the situation of economy and investment in Egypt seemed not to affect these projects so far, and hence there was no need for the use of soft loan guarantees.
She informed that the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) has estimated Egypt’s economic stability on grade four, given an evaluation scale ranging from grade one (“distinguished economies”) to grade seven (“weak economies”). 
 
“Egyptian economy to witness a fast recovery after return of stability”
Speaking on behalf of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), Mag. Sandra Spatzierer, Project Manager for Economic Partnerships, stressed on the importance of Egypt as a future economic partner, pointing to the high ratio of citizens and market opportunities in the Arab world. She expressed her belief that the Egyptian economy will witness a fast recovery the moment the country will regain its stability, considering all the economic indications in past years.
 
Subsequently to the statements by the expert speakers, the participating members took actively part in the discussion, raising questions of concerns for their own businesses and referring to their own experiences in the past days and weeks.
 
The exchange of thoughts, experience and contacts among participants and speakers was continued and completed at the given networking opportunity after the discussion session. (Total number of participants: 30)

EGYPT


The Egyptian economic status after political change


(
AACC)
 

After the resignation of the Egyptian political command and the temporary take-over of the power by the Supreme Council of Armed Forces last Friday, 11 February 2011, the Egyptian economy is slowly recovering from the extra-ordinary conditions of the past 18 days, through which Egypt may have lost millions of dollars every day. However, investors seem to be optimistic regarding the positive possibilities and changes for their activities during the next period under an elected government.
 
The Egyptian Central Bank intervened to support the Egyptian Pound in the past days, whereas the Egyptian Stock Exchange still remains closed on Wednesday, 16 February 2011.
However, Egyptian banks have resumed their work in addition to confirmations by the Central Bank to guarantee deposits for all depositors both by local and foreign currency. A statement issued by the Egyptian Ministry of Finance explained that the customs outlet continues to release all commodities within the framework of import facilitation.
 
The Suez Canal Organization declared that despite the decrease of revenues by a ratio of 1.6 % in January 2011 compared to December 2010, its revenues of 416,6 million Dollars nevertheless mark an increase compared to January 2010 . The Suez Canal, as one of the world’s major navigation hubs, is estimated to contribute about 5 billion Dollars to Egypt’s annual national income.
 
As for the tourism sector, that is considered a main source of Egypt’s national income with some 12 million tourists visiting Egypt and spending about 11 billion Dollars annually, tourist agencies informed that some popular seaside destinations like Sharm El-Sheikh and Hurghada seemed not to be affected greatly by the recent events, whereas tourism in the cities of Alexandria and Cairo almost stopped. However, it is expected that tourism in general will continue to flourish again by beginning of March with the support of the advertisement through tourism agencies.
 
Connectivity to Egypt through airlines is provided by Egypt Air offering 4 flights per week to Cairo, Austrian Airlines offering daily flights to Cairo, and Lauda Air (2-3 flights a week as from March); to learn about special regulations on flights and tickets kindly contact the airlines’s offices.

Despite Crisis - Economic Situation in Egypt Solid, Cohesive


(Global Arab Network )


Egypt’s Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq said that the economic situation in Egypt is solid and cohesive with enough reserves for the coming stage.

This came during a press conference Shafiq held to review a number of important domestic reports in light of a statement by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to the government and governors to manage state affairs temporarily until a new government is formed.

Shafiq said his government are cooperating with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces which runs the country's affairs.

He said the conditions in the country are going smoothly and all matters are referred to the council.

"Our internal economic position is solid and cohesive," he said in a press conference. "We have enough reserves in the coming period and our situation is comforting, very comforting." He said the government is keen on ensuring continued work in projects in order to stave off any delay.

TUNISIA


After Ben Ali – Tunisia looks toward 5% economic growth


(Global Arab Network, published in partnership with Oxford Business Group)

The new year brought radical change to Tunisia, as the country’s long-time president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, was forced to step down in mid-January following a wave of increasingly violent street protests. While this transition has cast an air of uncertainty around Tunisia’s future, the country’s economic performance over the past year was nonetheless impressive.

According to the Tunisian National Institute of Statistics, GDP grew by 3.8% year-on-year (y-o-y) in the third quarter of 2010, following a rise of 3.1% over the course of 2009. The IMF, meanwhile, reported that Tunisia’s growth could increase gradually and reach an average of about 5% over 2010-14.

Real GDP growth has accelerated since mid-2009, reaching 4.5% y-o-y in the first quarter of 2010, driven by 6.6% growth in the non-manufacturing sector, 5.7% in manufacturing, 5.2% in services and 4% in non-merchant services, supported by public administration. However, this was offset by a slowdown in agriculture and fishing, with production declining by 8.6%, as compared to an increase of 6% in 2009, mainly a result of insufficient rainfall.

With a view to improving the performance of the agricultural sector, one of the country’s main aims has been to increase its share of high-quality exports to the global market. To cope with an expected drop in olive oil production, from 160,000 tonnes in 2009/10 to a projected 110,000 tonnes in 2010/11, the government announced the projected launch of a Tunisian quality label for olive oil and unveiled plans to raise the production of packaged and processed olive oil to 10% of total production, Global Arab Network reports according to OBG.

As part of its efforts to tap into the lucrative international market for organic food products, over the past decade Tunisia has been steadily increasing the amount of cultivated land farmed using approved natural methods. As a result, it has become a major player in the organic farming industry, ranked second in Africa and 24th globally in terms of organic production, with the sector aiming to move further up the rankings. Under a programme running from 2009-14, Tunisia plans to increase the total land set aside for organic produce to 500,000 ha by the end of 2014.

Tunisia’s budget deficit is expected to remain at 3% of GDP, the same level as in 2009. Public debt, meanwhile, has continued falling, from 43% of GDP in 2009 to 39% in 2010. In parallel, imports increased by 20% in 2010, while exports grew by 17%. At the end of November 2010 the account deficit stood at 4.6% of GDP, against 2.8% in 2009. However, official estimates originally projected it to fall again, to 3.7% in 2011.

In 2010 the exchange rate of the Tunisian dinar to the euro was stable, a departure from 2009, when its depreciation made it more attractive for EU investors. The EU remains Tunisia’s main trading partner, accounting for 72.5% of the country’s imports and 75% of its exports in 2009.

According to IMF figures, foreign direct investment (FDI) was up by 5% y-o-y in the first four months of the year. The World Economic Forum’s “Arab World Competitiveness Review 2010” said that Tunisia became an “outsourcing hub” in the MENA region, succeeding in attracting FDI both in traditional sectors such as textiles production, car assembly and food processing, as well as in high-value sector such as IT, aeronautics, and customer service. This shift has begun to bear fruit. According to figures from the Ministry of Industry and Technology, around 25% of Tunisia's 2009 exports were high-tech products. The ministry expects this number to increase to 50% by 2014.

The Tunis Stock Exchange (TSE) ended 2010 at 5111 points, an increase of 19.1%, compared to a rise of 48.4% at the end of 2009. The stock market remains relatively small with around 50 listed companies and relatively low liquidity. The TSE’s rise owed much to the performance of Tunis Re (+110.9%), STIP (+107.1%), El Wifack Leasing (+94.6%), Attijari Leasing (+92.2%), Insurance Salim (+70.9%), Siam (+59.6%) and Amen Bank (+51.6%). Meanwhile, ADWYA (-22.6%), Tunisair (-18.9%), SIPHAT (-14.1%), SOPAT (-12.9%) and SOTUVER (-18.6%) closed with poor results.

According to local media reports, the tourism sector, the country’s largest foreign currency earner, saw overnight stays increase from 27.3m in 2009 to 28m in 2010. However, receipts from tourism fell over the first eight months of the year, from €1.3bn in 2009 to €1.1bn in 2010. Quality has been a particular focus of late, with efforts under way to upgrade infrastructure and improve vocational training centres. Cultural, environmental, wellness and sports tourism are also being developed to balance what is currently a largely seasonal industry. The tourism ministry aimed to welcome 10m tourists per year by 2015, against 7m arrivals in 2009. An influx of Algerian and Libyan visitors – which served to substitute a drop in European tourists during the global recession in 2008-09 – has also been crucial to fiscal stability.

The country’s key challenge is to boost job-generating growth and employment levels, according to IMF economists. As a result of the economic slowdown, unemployment remains high, at 13.3% in 2009, particularly among young graduates (21.7% in 2009). Similarly, inflation – which increased from 3.5 % in 2009 to 4.6% at the end of September 2010 – is an issue that causes hardship among the less well off. These two concerns, allied to a perception of wholly unacceptable levels of corruption, were the main causes of the riots that overthrew the president.

Despite a relatively strong performance in 2010 and gradually improving indicators in some of its main markets in Europe, the ongoing political instability and the public dissatisfaction evident on the nation’s streets make it difficult to predict anything about Tunisia’s fate, let alone its economy.

حالة الاقتصاد المصري بعد التغييرات السياسية

(غرفة التجارة العربية النمساوية)

بعد تنحي القيادة السياسية المصرية، وتولي المجلس الأعلى للقوات المسلحة مقاليد الحكم في البلد بصورة مؤقتة، بدأت الحياة تدب مجددا في الاقتصاد المصري، في أعقاب حالة من الشلل أصحاب العديد من مناحي الحياة لمدة 18 يوما، فقدت خلالها مصر ملايين الدولارات يوميا.
ويبدي مستثمرون تفاؤلا بشأن التغيرات الكبيرة في أنشطة الاعمال والسياسة في الفترة القادمة في ظل حكومة منتخبة.
ومن المقرر أن تستأنف البورصة المصرية عملها يوم الأربعاء المقبل، في الوقت الذي تدخل فيه البنك المركزي لدعم الجنيه المصري الأسبوع الماضي. كما استأنفت البنوك في مصر العمل وسط تأكيدات البنك المركزي بضمان جميع ودائع المودعين في كافة البنوك سواء بالعملة المحلية أو الأجنبية.

وأوضح بيان صادر عن وزارة المالية المصرية أنه في إطار التيسيرات المقدمة لحركة الواردات فإن المنافذ الجمركية مستمرة في الإفراج عن كافة السلع حتي آخر بيان جمركي يتم تقديمه.
وأعلنت هيئة قناة السويس، أنه ورغم تراجع إيرادات القناة بنسبة 1.6% في شهر يناير الماضي، محققة 416.6 مليون دولار، مقارنة بشهر ديسمبر من العام الماضي، والتي بلغت 423.4 مليون دولار، إلا أن هذه الإيرادات تزيد بنسبة 8.6% أو 94.2 مليون دولار عن مستواها في شهر يناير من العام الماضي.

ولقناة السويس أهمية كبرى كرافد رئيس لحركة الملاحة حول العالم، وما يرافق ذلك من دخل سنوي لمصر يقدر بنحو 5 مليار دولار.
أما في قطاع السياحة، والذي يعد مصدر أساسي للدخل القومي في مصر، حيث يزور مصر سنويا نحو 12 مليون سائح، ينفقون ما يقرب من 11 مليار دولار، فقد أشارت مصادر سياحية إلى أن حركة السياحة إلى كل من شرم الشيخ والغردقة لم تتأثر بدرجة كبيرة من الأحداث الأخيرة، مقابل توقف السياحة في المدن الرئيسية مثل القاهرة والإسكندرية.
وتشير التوقعات إلى أن حركة السياحة ستزدهر مجددا مع بداية شهر مارس المقبل، والمؤشر على ذلك الدعايات التي تروج لها الشركات السياحية إلى مصر.

السفر بالطائرة إلى مصر متوفر من خلال شركة مصر للطيران، التي تقدم 4 رحلات أسبوعيا إلى القاهرة، وكذلك عن طريق الخطوط الجوية النمساوية التي تقدم رحلة يوميا إلى القاهرة، وأيضا عن طريق شركة لاودا إير التي تقدم اعتبارا من شهر مارس المقبل من 2-3 رحلات أسبوعيا. ولمعرفة المزيد بشأن الرحلات وتذاكر السفر يرجى الاتصال بمكاتب الشركات المذكورة.
