After the revolution, Egypt has experienced frequent electricity blackouts and a severe shortage of energy supplies. The government responded to the problem by reduc-ing the subsidy on energy for heavy industries, and household electricity use. Also, the government planned to introduce a smart card system that entails a certain quota of fuel for each registered car per month.

The Government of Egypt, supported by the World Bank Group, has achieved significant results across all three focus areas under this CPF. Policy reforms—backed by the US$ billion Development Policy Finance (DPF) program and consisting of 3 operations over the 3 years of to —have supported Egypt’s homegrown reforms’ program, which is aimed at enhancing the economy.
