The head of the International Finance Corporation said on Friday that he was encouraged by Egypt’s economic reforms such as cuts to costly fuel subsidies last year but called for more action to improve the investment climate.

The sign is positive, we need to see more,” Jin-Yong Cai told Reuters at an international conference in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh. He said regulations and investment policies still needed to be improved.
