Cairo – Egypt’s total foreign exchange receipts during fiscal year (FY) 2020/2021 registered $126.7 billion, a decrease of 1.7% from $128.9 billion in FY19/20.

Total foreign cash payments stood at $129.5 billion during FY20/21, compared with $143.2 billion in FY19/20, representing a drop of 9.6%.

Members of the Arab League represented 42.4% of total inward foreign exchange receipts at $53.7 billion. Saudi Arabia topped the list with receipts worth $23.5 billion.
