Egypt’s Suez Canal Annual Revenues Decline To $5.61bn In 2020



Egypt’s revenues from the Suez Canal in 2020 declined three percent to $5.61 billion compared to 2019, the canal authority said in a statement on Sunday.


Transit fees for all types of ships would remain unchanged in 2021 and would include reductions and incentives offered in 2020, Canal Authority Chairman Osama Rabie said.


Rabie said their marketing policies had helped to protect much of the canal’s shipping volumes and revenues against the global economic slowdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.


The canal is the fastest shipping route between Europe and Asia and one of the Egyptian government’s main sources of foreign currency.
