The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, to maintain his political dominance following recent constitutional amendments. His government will quell domestic disquiet over economic challenges and suppress dissent.

Egypt's ties with the US and the UAE and Saudi Arabia will remain strong, but Mr Sisi will also cultivate diplomatic and economic engagement with Russia and China.

Efforts to reform the fiscal and business environment will be sustained throughout the 2019-23 forecast period, albeit at a modest pace. We do not expect Egypt to seek a new deal with the IMF when its current agreement expires in 2019.
