March 25 (Bloomberg) -- Egypt said it had foreign direct investment outflows of $482.7 million in 2011 compared with inflows of $6.4 billion a year earlier after the popular uprising that toppled President Hosni Mubarak.

The Arab country registered a balance of payments deficit of $18.3 billion in 2011 compared with a surplus of $1.3 billion in 2010, the central bank said in an e-mailed statement today. Remittances rose to $14.3 billion from $12.5 billion in 2010, it said.
