Suez Canal Sept revenue climbs to $410m
Cairo, October 9, 2010
Revenue from Egypt's Suez Canal rose to $410.2 million in September from $382.5 million a year earlier, a state Web site showed on Saturday.
But revenue fell month on month from $438.4 million in August, the site said, compared with an earlier reported August figure of $436 million.
The waterway is a vital source of foreign currency in Egypt, along with tourism, oil and gas exports and remittances from Egyptians living abroad. – Reuters
