We have published a summary briefing[1] analysing the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development’s first year of lending in Egypt.

The bank remains resolutely committed to directing its funds towards oil extraction, agribusiness and the power sector. Only 4.7% of loans are destined for small & medium-sized enterprises, and 0% to renewable energy projects.
