CAIRO - Egypt has set a customs exchange rate of 19.318 Egyptian pounds to the U.S. dollar from Sept. 8, a change from 18.64 pounds in June, state newspaper Akhbar al-Youm reported on Thursday citing the customs authority.

Egypt devalued its pound by 14% in March after foreign investors pulled billions of dollars out of Egyptian treasury markets, putting pressure on the currency, following Russia's Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine.
