Egypt to Receive First Tranche of $1.5 Billion Saudi Loan ‘Soon’ - Bloomberg

Egypt to Receive First Tranche of $1.5 Billion Saudi Loan ‘Soon’ - Bloomberg:

"Egypt will “soon” receive the first tranche of a $1.5 billion loan from Saudi Arabia, an Egyptian minister said, a cash injection that could help to ease a dollar shortage that has weighed on economic growth.
The first payment will be about $500 million, Egypt’s Minister of International Cooperation Sahar Nasr said. The loan is one of a package of agreements worth $25 billion signed during Saudi King Salman’s visit to Cairo in April, which include a $16 billion investment fund and a plan to build a bridge connecting the two nations. A Saudi delegation will visit Egypt next week, Nasr said."
