CAIRO - Egypt's net foreign reserves rose to $44.14 billion at the end of May from $44.030 billion at the end of April, the central bank said on Monday.

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