The thesis of this paper examines the present state of securities markets in Egypt in light of the country's needs for economic growth and analyzes their problems with the institutional measures currently existing. Following an introductory chapter on the importance of capital markets development for Egypt, especially with regard to the privatization policy currently adopted by the government, the thesis addresses the capital markets in Egypt under several points. It emphasizes the existing securities market and the securities stock exchange, with the available operations of the stock exchanges and the supply and demand of securities and the institutional investor interest in securities; determines the role of existing financial (non-banking) intermediaries as a source of capita for both the private and public sector that can be used to activate the capital market; discusses the role of the National Investment Bank (NIB) with its role as an intermediate chain between the various saving sources and the government commands, in addition to the rest of its roles; and analyzes the crucial role of the Capital Market Authority as the key organization and influence for capital markets development in Egypt. The paper also deals with the legal and tax framework, which serves as the background in which the capital market operates. Under this section, a study of the general laws that facilitate formations, operations, and issuance of securities by corporations is presented, as well as a study of the tax incentives and the financial accounting and auditing standards. In addition. the paper discusses the new capital market law.

From the Paper:

"In studying the failure of the Egyptian Stock Market to live up to expectations or, at the minimum, stabilize and expand to emerge as a coherent and viable economic entity, one can identify a number of causal factors, ranging from a general lack of awareness of the potentials of the stock market as an investment arena, to government interferences. While each of the many causal factors plays a significant role in explaining the stated failure, all pale in comparison to the politico-legal factors underlying that failure. Briefly and simply stated, the Egyptian stock market is subject to seemingly arbitrary investment laws which encourage neither stabilization nor investments. Over and above, the laws are constantly changed, or undergoing endless reform processes which communicate to potential investors that the market has yet to develop a tight and stable framework as would motivate investment."
