CAIRO - Egypt's foreign currency reserves rose slightly to $44.513 billion at the end of November from $44.501 billion in October, the central bank said on Tuesday.

The reserves have been climbing since Egypt secured a $12 billion, three-year International Monetary Fund loan programme in 2016 as part of efforts to attract foreign investors and revive its ailing economy.
