Egypt should get third tranche of IMF credit after second review, end-2017

CAIRO, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Egypt is expected to receive a third installment of around $2 billion of its $12 billion IMF credit programme after a second review at the end of this year, the IMF said on Tuesday.

Egypt's inflation is expected to fall to "slightly above" 10 percent by the end of fiscal year 2017/2018 and to single digits by 2019, Subir Lall, IMF Mission Chief for Egypt, Middle East and Central Asia Department, said in an online briefing. (Reporting by Patrick Markey, editing by Larry King)
