Abstract:The Egyptian economy has undergone several reforms since the early 1990s. Key initiatives included shifting to a flexible exchange rate regime, liberalizing trade, revising and reducing the tariff structure, and improving the income tax system. This volume evaluates the impact of these reforms and highlights priority areas for further reform. Topics addressed include growth, distribution, and poverty reduction; monetary policy and the impact of exchange rate liberalization; unemployment and job creation; and the new pension system. Sectors which are focused on in particular are the health and energy sectors.
