Egypt’s foreign reserves registered $15.42bn in January, compared to $15.3bn in December, the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) announced Thursday.

As for gold reserves, the CBE said that it has reached $2.66bn in January, up from $2.45bn in December.

In November, the international foreign currency stock at the CBE recorded $15.8bn, but it dropped in December due to the repayment of $2.5bn in Qatari deposits in that month, according to Governor of CBE Hisham Ramez.

Egypt also has other debts, including the Paris Club debt, of which $681m was repaid in January, with the CBE expected to repay another instalment next June.
