Abstract:

BMI View: Egypt s economic growth will gather steam over the coming quarters on the back of political stability, pent-up demand and a weaker currency. While this will be good for the country s exports, it does mean that the country s domestic consumer demand for imports of container goods - whether transported by air or in intermodal containers - will falter. However, support in this regard will come from the steady improvement in the tourism sector, where increasing political stability and a weak currency will encourage returning visitors, with their own demand for goods imports. Although our growth forecasts for volumes carried on Egypt s different freight modes in ---- and ---- - namely Air, Road and Rail - are not for spectacular growth, they are nevertheless positive, and will remain so over the course of our forecast period to ----, due to a relatively upbeat macroeconomic and trade outlook for the country. This is especially the case when compared to recent years, as political turmoil since the ouster of long-serving President Hosni Mubarak in ---- has led to a dampening in economic expansion. ...Air freight will outpace growth in both road and rail freight in ---- and ----, and remain the outperformer over the course of our medium-term forecast period to ----. While domestic consumer demand might be under pressure, low statistical base effects, and a rebound in the tourism sector as political unrest abates, will ensure an expansion in volumes.

The reported presence of Hizbullah operatives in Sinai, apparently planning to attack tourist sites in Egypt, has highlighted the lack of effective policing in the region and added to security risks in the area. ...Demands for the military to quicken the transition process away from authoritarian rule are unlikely to be met, which could increase the risk of large-scale unrest.

...A new bridge to potentially be built between Egypt and Saudi Arabia would be a boon for the Egyptian road and rail freight sectors. New government legislation allowed quasi-governmental bodies, such as the Egyptian railways, to issue bonds, which will in turn result in greater investment. ...
