CAIRO: The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) on behalf of the Ministry of Finance is set to auction 5.250 billion EGP ($670.4) in treasury bonds Monday, according to the bank’s official website.

Egypt’s central bank usually holds T-bonds auctions every Monday.

“The T-bonds are to be offered in two installments; the first valued at 3 billion EGP with a five-year term, the second worth 2.250 billion EGP with a 10-year term,” according to the CBE website.

The government seeks to borrow from the domestic market to cover the state budget deficit which exceeds 10 percent of GDP since FY 2011/2012.
