Maait added that public expenditures grew by 16.7% YoY.

Egypt has recorded a primary surplus of EGP 164.3 billion, equivalent to 1.7% of GDP, as per the initial indicators of the financial performance for FY 2022/2023.

The total deficit stood at 6.2%, compared to 6.1% in FY 2021/2022, the minister pointed out.

Subsidies for food commodities rose to EPG 129.7 billion, and treasury-financed investments increased by about 15%, reaching EGP 228 billion.
