In Juli Egypt was USA's 50. largest foreign trade partner. Rise from the previous month 3 places. $558 million worth of trade was 33.5 per cent lower than in Juli of the previous year. During the month, the balance of trade with Egypt was $112 million of surplus.

The value of imports from Egypt decreased strongly, by 37.9 per cent compared to in Juli of the previous year. The import amounted to $223 million in Juli 2020. Major product categories of imports from Egypt were Sitc931 (special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind), representing 26.1 percent of imports, Sitc845 (articles of apparel, of textile fabrics, whether or not knitted or crocheted, n.e.s.) 12.5 % and Sitc334 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals (other than crude); preparations, n.e.s., containing by weight 70% or more of petroleum oils or of oils obtained from bituminous minerals, these oils being the basic constituents of the prepar) 9.8 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Egypt declined by 30.2 per cent compared to in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $335 million in Juli 2020. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc222 (oil-seeds and oleaginous fruits of a kind used for the extraction of *soft* fixed vegetable oils (excluding flours and meals)), which represented a share of 22.6 per cent of total exports, Sitc891 (arms and ammunition) 16.2 % and Sitc081 (feeding stuff for animals (not including unmilled cereals)) 5.2 % of the exports.

Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of both imports and exports decreased significantly. The decline in imports was -34.6 % and in the value of exports -16.6 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc334 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals (other than crude); preparations, n.e.s., containing by weight 70% or more of petroleum oils or of oils obtained from bituminous minerals, these oils being the basic constituents of the prepar), worth $198 million. In export the largest value had Sitc222 (oil-seeds and oleaginous fruits of a kind used for the extraction of *soft* fixed vegetable oils (excluding flours and meals)), worth being $834 million.
