The volume of foreign trade in the same period grew 9 percent to $21.265 billion, up from $19.520 billion, Trade Minister Tarek Kabil said in a statement.

The trade budget deficit improved by 2 percent, the statement said. The improvements were thanks to increased exports from Egypt’s chemicals, fertiliser and clothes manufacturing sectors, among others, it said.
