(MENAFN) Intl’ Monetary Fund (IMF) proclaimed that it will recommend an approval of USD12bn loan for Egypt to support the country’s reform program.

Meanwhile, Egyptians are looking at a period of hardship as the government unrolls austerity measures ahead of the IMF program.

In addition, the government also proclaimed a 7 percent salary increase for civil servants, who number almost 6mn out of a total population of more than 90mn.
