Egypt will seek the $3 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that it rejected last year, in an effort to stem its economic decline and restore its foreign-currency reserves.
Egypt will return to negotiations with the IMF next week, and will likely have to accede to IMF demands for economic reforms to receive the loan.
Egypt’s military-led government originally rejected the IMF’s offer in June 2011 because of populist sentiment opposing any inhibition on Egyptian sovereignty.Jewish Press Staff
