Egypt Not Looking to Devalue Pound as It Seeks Loan, Ahram Says

Egypt doesn’t intend to devalue the Egyptian pound, the state-run Al-Ahram reported today, citing Finance Minister Momtaz el-Saieed, ahead of a meeting with the IMF to discuss a request for a $4.8 billion loan.

The International Monetary Fund didn’t impose conditions on the loan request made more than a year ago for $3.2 billion, El-Saieed said, adding that a devaluation was not a consideration.

The IMF’s Christine Lagarde is to meet with Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, Prime Minister Hisham Qandil and Mursi’s economic team today.
