Since the start of 2023, Egypt’s ports have released imported commodities worth USD 63 million, with goods worth USD 5 billion still awaiting release. The Egyptian Customs Authority (ECA) announced that they are continuing their efforts in expediting the release process.

Ever since the start of the Russia-Ukraine war, which has affected economies across the globe, Egypt has been struggling with releasing its goods from ports due to a shortage of foreign currency and the resulting devaluation of the Egyptian pound. The backlog of products at Egyptian ports reached an all-time high in October 2022, with goods worth USD 15 billion.
