Egypt’s Non-Oil Business Activity Slows

Egypt’s non-oil private sector business activity shrank at a slower pace in October as business confidence hit a 26-month high and contractions in output, new orders and employment all eased, a survey showed on Sunday, Reuters reported. The Emirates National Bank of Dubai Egypt Purchasing Managers’ Index for the non-oil private sector rose to 48.4 in October from 47.4 a month before but remained below the 50 mark that separates growth from contraction. “Output, new orders and employment declined at a slower rate in October compared with September and new export orders increased on average last month, after declining in September,” said Khatija Haque, head of MENA Research at Emirates NBD. “Encouragingly, business optimism in October was the highest in more than two years.” Output continued to decline in October, extending the current sequence of decline to 25 months, but improved from the previous month, with the related sub-index standing at 47.1, compared with 46.5 in September, the survey showed.
