The Central Bank of Egypt said Egypt's total imports rose by $ 1.3 billion to stand at $16.05 billion in the second quarter of 2017-2018 fiscal year in comparison with $ 14.74 billion in the second quarter of 2016-2017 fiscal year.
This rise is attributed to increasing imports
of fuel, mineral oil and their products which stood at $ 3.35 billion, the CBE
said in a statement on Wednesday.
Petroleum products imports also ratcheted
up to $2.6 billion, the statement said.
The report added that imports of durable
good stood at $ 659.7 million and non-durable goods at $ 2.5 billion.
