The Future of Egypt’s Special Funds



Khaled Zakaria Amin

Despite the attention frequently given to the file of special funds, reform remains far from complete. This webinar discussed Egypt’s special funds aiming to produce proposals for reform. These reform proposals are intended to be integrated into a forthcoming ECES working paper. The discussions addressed the system of special funds and accounts in Egypt, their nature, the institutional and legal framework governing them, reasons for their creation, their relationship to the state’s general budget, their size and balances and their performance. Finally, the webinar concluded by offering proposals for reforming the whole system.
