Just In: Egypt Issues Chinese Yuan-Denominated Bonds


Egypt issued the Chinese Yuan-denominated panda bonds to pay off foreign loans, making the nation the 1st Mena (Middle East North Africa) nation to do so.

Egypt, a country riddled with debts, made a move that displays another shift towards de-dollarization by issuing the Chinese currency valued at 3.5 billion yuan or $479 million.

Even though Egypt is short of cash, it still faces a deep foreign loan repayment after its extended loan spree, which made the country shunned mainly by the international capital markets and ask the IMF for help.

As a result, the country attempts to move away from transacting with expensive dollar-denominated debts by issuing the Chinese Yuan.

In Brief

  • Reportedly, the North African nation launched bonds with an interest rate of 3.5% to diversify Egypt’s funding sources.
  • Furthermore, reports from a reliable source disclosed that the interest rate on these panda bonds is lower than that which the country would usually pay if they were denominated in dollars.
  • Moreover, this recent bold step by Egypt has reduced the country’s credit rating position to Caa1 and some seven levels reduced to junk status.
  • According to a rating agency, Moody, one of the significant reasons Egypt’s credit status was reduced was its declining debt affordability.
  • Meanwhile, Panda bonds are yuan-denominated notes issued by non-Chinese entities in Chinese markets.
  • The bonds are the strategy that international companies, international institutions, and governments use to creep into the Chinese capital market, which Egypt desperately needs.
