Former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has been sworn in as president of Egypt today. Sisi is said to have won 97% of the vote in last month's election.

Egypt's economy still has a long way to recovery, and a rapidly growing population mixed with widespread poverty should make job creation a number one priority. The forecast for the country's economic growth for the fiscal year beginning July 1 is set at 3.2%.
