The cabinet also approved a bill to amend the regulations of the environment law, the report said.

Egypt is under an economic reform plan, which is hailed and encouraged by a 12-billion-dollar loan, from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), whose first tranche of 2.75 billion was delivered in Nov, 2016, and the second of 1.25 billion, in July, 2017.

Egypt has been facing economic recession over the past few years, due to political turmoil and relevant security issues, which led to declining tourism and foreign investments, amid growing budget deficit, inflation rate and foreign and domestic debts
