IMF says ready to disburse final $2 bln tranche of Egypt loan

CAIRO, May 17 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund said on Friday its team had reached a staff-level agreement with Egypt to disburse the final $2 billion tranche of a $12 billion loan.

The three-year loan programme was signed in 2016. As part of the IMF programme, Egypt has been carrying out economic reforms including a steep devaluation of the pound, deep cuts to its energy subsidies and the introduction of new taxes. (Reporting by Lena Masri; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
