Egypt foreign reserves fall by $84m in Sept
Cairo, October 8, 2012
Egypt's foreign reserves fell by $84 million in September but held above $15 billion for a third straight month after foreign donors began fulfilling promises of aid to the country's troubled economy.
Net international reserves fell to $15.04 billion at the end of September from $15.13 billion at the end of August, Egypt's central bank said on its website.
The reserves have plunged by more than half since a popular uprising in January 2011, which scared away tourists and investors, two of Egypt's main sources of foreign currency. – Reuters
