Cairo – Mubasher: The Egyptian government is considering the issuance of a new currency worth EGP 2, finance minister Mohamed Maait said.
The government will announce their decision regarding the matter soon as it is still under study, the minister added in an interview on TEN TV.
He noted that the whole world has issued a currency with the same value.
