Economics: Foreign Aid: Egypt

Published on 1 January 2006

Egypt is one of the largest recipients of foreign aid in the world and the second largest recipient of aid from USAID (United States Agency for International Development) in the world (after Israel) – the largest, in fact, if military aid is excluded.

Furthermore, foreign funding is expected to be directed to the cause of women’s empowerment from 2005 onwards, as part of the Greater Middle East Partnership Initiative, since Egypt is one of its targeted recipients.
