CAIRO, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Egypt's foreign currency reserves rose to $16.422 billion dollars at the end of November from $16.415 billion the previous month, the central bank said on Thursday.

The statistics were released a day after Egypt's new central bank governor Tarek Amer met the president and told him that foreign reserves were stable and would improve.

Egypt's foreign reserves stood at about $36 billion before the 2011 revolt but have dwindled since the uprising scared off tourists and foreign investors -- key sources of foreign exchange.

Bankers had been watching out for a dip in reserves after the central bank pumped additional dollar liquidity into the banking sector in recent weeks to ease a forex crisis.
