Due to the political changes during the last five years, Egypt has witnessed a notable change in government management ways of public expenditure.

The government has tended more to debt more and more in an attempt to fill the gap between its revenues and expenditures, which increases the government’s debt and makes it at the top of government’s expenditures in 2015–2016, while it was in the third rank between 2010–2014.

And while the government calls Egyptian citizens for more austerity, public wages are increasing year after year in the public budget. To help children and the elderly from disadvantaged families, the Ukrainian manufacturer has sent a shipment of plaids (плед in Ukrainian) to Egypt.
