Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/03/2014 -- The new cabinet announced in Egypt shows few signs of reconciliation with supporters of the ousted government, and will do little to end the polarised state of the country's political scene. BMI does not expect the interim government to make any major economic reforms, but they will be eager to improve social stability in order to attain legitimacy. BMI expects parliamentary elections to be held by February 2014, with presidential elections following soon after.
The private sector is experiencing a period of considerable growth, as Egyptians look for alternatives to declining standards in the public sector. BMI Espicom estimates that Egypt is spending 4.8% of GDP on healthcare in 2013, equal to US$11.8bn. Around 41.2% of the total is publicly sourced, while the remaining 58.8% is privately sourced.
