Egypt's foreign currency gap narrows to $400 million in July - cenbank official

08/13/2022 | 09:03am EDT

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's foreign currency gap narrowed to $400 mln last month from $3.9 bln in February, deputy governor of the Central Bank of Egypt Gamal Negm said on Saturday.

Egypt has seen billions of dollars leave its markets since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February as investors have fled emerging markets for safer havens.

But Negm told Egypt's official news agency that the foreign currency gap -- the difference between the country's foreign currency needs and its current holdings -- had narrowed last month thanks to the central bank's decisions regarding "imports regulation".

Negm also ruled out any considerable devaluation of the local currency soon.
