What is GDP?

Gross domestic product, or GDP, is the sum of all consumption, investment, and government spending in an economy, plus the net exports. This figure is the most commonly used measurement of an economy’s size. Also interesting is GDP per capita, which is GDP divided by the total population. This gives an idea of the level of development in a country.

Reasons to follow GDP growth

GDP growth can give an idea of a country’s future finances. This is important for countries with a negative budget balance. These countries need to secure loans to finance their deficits, and higher growth forecasts show a better ability to repay these loans. This results in lower interest rates on their sovereign debt. Egypt’s economy is quite stable for now, after years of political unrest that affected the economy.
