About Egypt

For over three decades, the American people have helped to improve the quality of life for all Egyptians. Thirty-five years ago, Egypt was a low-income country with a stagnant economy. Today, despite the current economic crisis, Egypt has one of the most diversified economies in the Middle East. Per capita income and exports have increased. Infant mortality has decreased, youth literacy has increased, and utility services have expanded. 

USAID’s program in Egypt has directly and fundamentally supported these gains. Nationwide programs in health, education, trade facilitation, small and micro-enterprise, tourism and infrastructure development have benefited Egyptians across the country, especially those in underserved areas.
