Country Assistance Strategy (CAS) prepared as a joint Bank-IFC CAS emphasizes Egypt's overall development and proposes offering more in non-lending services than in financial contribution. Four core themes -export development private sector-led growth human resources development and natural resource management- are all integrated into the goal of reducing unemployment and raising living standards. To support exports the Bank plans further analysis in trade-related infrastructure customs procedures product standards harmonization and export finance. The Bank will focus on encouraging privatization and private infrastructure and on assisting financial sector development. To improve the social safety net the Bank will focus on analyzing poverty decentralizing social services delivery involving nongovernmental organizations and give continued operational support to the social fund. Health reform strategy aims to: (1) strengthen the health ministry's capacity in policy planning and governance; (2) decentralize financing and delivery; (3) develop health manpower; (4) develop pharmaceutical management; and (5) reform health insurance financing and organization. Bank work in education will expand dialogue and activities into primary education high quality education and increasing the market orientation of technical education and vocational training.
