CAIRO – 15 November 2021: The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE), on behalf of the Ministry of Finance, is set to issue LE 9 billion in treasury bonds (T-bills) on Monday, Nov. 15.

The T-bonds were offered in three installments, with the first valued at LE 7 billion with a two-year term, the second worth LE 1.25 million with a five-year term, and the third worth LE 750 million with a 10-year term.

The Monetary Policy Committee of the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) decided Thursday, Oct. 28, to keep the overnight deposit rate, overnight lending rate, and the rate of the main operation unchanged at 8.25 percent, 9.25 percent, and 8.75 percent, respectively.
