As anticipated, Shariah-Compliant Finance is making headway into the Egyptian financial system and economy.

The latest evidence comes from the announcement that the Egyptian Electricity Ministry has inked its first ever Shariah-compliant financing contract with the help of National Bank for Development (NBD) and the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank.

The $110 million deal is the first such contract that “conforms to Islamic Sharia to finance public sector projects.”

The money will go to the East Delta Electricity Production Company.
