CBE issues EGP 16.75bn T-bills Thursday

Cairo – Mubasher: The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) will issue treasury bills (T-bills) worth EGP 16.75 billion on Thursday on behalf of the Ministry of Finance (MOF).

The first tranche of T-bills will be offered through 182-day notes at EGP 8.25 billion, while the second offering will be through 357-day notes at EGP 8.5 billion, according to the CBE’s official website.

The issuance will be used to finance the budget deficit, the CBE said.

Egypt’s debt instruments, especially T-bills, are attractive to foreign investors owing to their high yield.

State-run banks are the largest holders of the government’s debt instruments.

Egypt aims to issue EGP 409.6 billion T-bills and EGP 101.6 billion bonds in fiscal year 2018/2019.

The CBE previously said that Egypt’s total foreign debt rose 2.3% quarter-on-quarter, or $1.8 billion, to $80.8 billion in the first quarter of FY17/18.
