IMF Deputy Managing Director Antoinette Sayeh Makes First Visit to Egypt

Antoinette Sayeh, the Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), is making her inaugural visit to Egypt, according to Said Bakhache, the IMF senior resident representative in Egypt.

The visit is aimed at strengthening the relationship between Egypt and the IMF and discussing potential areas of collaboration and support.

Sayeh has met with Egyptian officials and stakeholders, including Mohamed Maait, the Minister of Finance, Hassan Abdalla, the Central Bank of Egypt’s Governor, and Moustafa Madbouly, the Prime Minister.

The main objective of Sayeh’s visit is to discuss the IMF’s recently finished paper titled Managing Fiscal Risks in the Middle East and North Africa, which focuses on fiscal risks in the region.

“If the programme is fully implemented, the needs of all the Egyptian people will be met, and Egypt will be in a better position. While there may be some people who are not enthusiastic, the best way to deal with them is to implement the programme so that they can feel its positive effects,” Sayeh stated.

Sayeh further added, “the government has taken significant steps towards achieving a level playing field between the public and private sectors, which has been approved by the state.”
