Research and Markets: Egypt's Cards and Payments Industry 2014: Emerging Opportunities, Trends, Size, Drivers, Strategies, Products and Competitive Landscape

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zqddds/egypts_cards_and) has announced the addition of the "Egypt's Cards and Payments Industry: Emerging Opportunities, Trends, Size, Drivers, Strategies, Products and Competitive Landscape" report to their offering.

The Egyptian economy is the second-largest in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia. The economy depends largely on agriculture, tourism and cash remittances from Egyptians working abroad, mainly in Saudi Arabia and Gulf countries. With the government and banks striving to offer basic financial services to the unbanked population and banks expanding their presence in rural areas, the Egyptian cards and payments industry registered positive growth during the review period (2009-2013).

In July 2014, the newly elected President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi announced a wide range of reforms, introducing new taxes, increasing selected taxes, and reducing energy subsidies which are anticipated to spur economic growth over the forecast period (2014-2018). Other Arab countries including Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Kuwait have committed around US$20.0 billion to Egypt, through a mix of central bank deposits, cash grants, in-kind grants, and project aid, of which about US$15.0-16.0 billion was received as of June 2014, according to the World Bank. The reforms are anticipated to have a positive effect on the cards and payments industry.
