Central bank of Egypt cancels maximum cash deposit limit

According to a report by Middle East News Agency, the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) has decided to remove the maximum limits on cash deposits for individuals and businesses at bank branches as well as through ATMs as part of a plan to reduce inflation. In order to prepare for the global economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis, the bank set a maximum limit on cash deposits as part of its measures to face the crisis.
