The past year witnessed political instabilities that reflected significantly on the Egyptian economy. Although 2014 had a rough kick start economically, some analysts have dubbed the year the best since the 25 January Revolution. With a newly elected president, who made many promises during his election campaign, many financial and legislative decisions were taken to march towards that path.
In our special issue, Daily News Egypt will look back at the past year. We will evaluate how far along Egypt has come to realising the goals set by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi. We will discuss the formation of the Long Live Egypt fund (Tahya Misr), created by the Egyptian president for a range of national projects, and which has become one of the most talked about topics this year.
We will focus on the national projects announced by the president and his government, highlighting how can these projects boost the economy. Daily News Egypt will also discuss the key economic decrees made in 2014. We will talk to analysts to understand whether or not these decisions are enough to solve the economic obstacle the country faces.
Finally, Daily News Egypt will tackle the development in industries including tourism, telecommunication and automotive. We will focus on the latest development in these sectors, the government steps to support them and whether or not these steps were productive.
