Strong government support for PPPs and a growing infrastructure project pipeline reinforce our positive outlook for Egypt's construction industry in 2016. The recent deterioration in the security situation will have a direct impact on investment in the tourism industry and as such commercial construction projects are at risk of being delayed and cancelled.
Key Trends And Developments
- We maintain our construction industry real growth forecast for Egypt in 2016 at 8%, given the large project pipeline and solid foreign investor interest in the market.
- The Egyptian government has the announced that it will tender 12 public-private partnerships (PPP) in the next 12 months. According to the Egyptian Ministry of Finance's PPP Central Unit, the new PPPs will be worth around USD4bn and will cover projects across all sectors, particularly in the transport and energy infrastructure sectors.
