Egypt's finances have been in serious decline since an uprising toppled President Hosni Mubarak nearly two years ago.

Recently ousted President Mohamed Morsi came to power a year ago after country's first democratic votes, but critics says his government was unable to balance the books despite major loans.

In a major boost for the struggling economy, the interim government appointed by the military has been promised another cash handout from wealthy Gulf states.
