Financial markets

The banking sector in Egypt represents 57 percent of the private sector’s overall capacity. The sector’s capacity and capital enable a drive for change and make an industry movement possible. Only four banks in Egypt are state-owned, whereas others are joint ventures. Since 2004, privatization and economic reforms, especially in the banking sector, have spurred active engagement and responsibility toward communities and in the country at large. The banking sector’s current capacity and capital remain significant when comparing its role in social and environment development. The Arab African International Bank (AAIB)’s experience offers a successful trendsetting model concerning the role of banks in affecting the growth of new industries and the economy at large.
