The results of the new ECES survey of industrial expectations, Industrial Barometer, paint a promising picture for the Egyptian manufacturing sector in the coming six months. Most indicators of current business activity in the manufacturing sector, relative to the previous six months, reflect continued growth in the overall economy, with the public sector generally more upbeat than the private sector. Even more promising is that expectations for future activity are higher than current levels of activity suggesting increased overall economic growth.
