The country's Consumer Price Index (CPI) reached 131.0 points in July 2022, according to the latest data by the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS).

Egypt’s annual inflation rate surged to 14.6% in July 2022, compared to 6.1% in the same month a year earlier.

In June of the year, the annual inflation rate registered 14.7%.
