Egypt's PM Announces Transfer of USD ...
Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
20 Apr 2012

Egyptian Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri said that the government transferred USD 6.14 billion from special funds of former regime offices to the state budget, in a press conference at the headquarters of the General Authority for Investment in Cairo, Thursday, April 19. Ex-regime offices once kept public monies in special private funds that were not incorporated into the state budget, and as such were not subject to oversight by any budget committee.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri:
"The issue of special funds has been going on for more than twenty years. Former regime government offices established these special funds from the public money resource to use for employment, salaries, rewards, etc. We traced these funds strictly, and like I said all these funds are now present at the Central Bank in the General Budget Account."

Al-Ganzouri stated that the government's costs have been gradually reduced saving USD 4.14 billion. He also shed light on the efforts done to relief Egypt's foreign debt.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Egypt's Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri:
"We have been keen on minimizing the foreign debts. They were USD 5.83 billion, seven months ago. In March 2012, they were reduced to USD 5.54 billion."

The Egyptian Prime Minister told reporters that even though the country's revenues declined to USD 12.8 billion over the past few months, the government successfully achieved relative and notable economic stability.
