The three year package will contribute to projects in electricity, roads, railways and education, the Saudi-based bank said in a statement.

The money will also be used for a 650-megawatt power station.

Egypt has been struggling to put its economy back on track after a popular uprising toppled president Hosni Mubarak in February.

During three weeks of anti-regime protests that started on January 25, the country was practically paralysed and its lucrative tourism industry badly affected.

The economy has also been affected by neighbouring conflicts.

Tens of thousands of Egyptian workers in Libya, who used to send money back to their families in Egypt, have fled the fighting between loyalist troops and rebels.

Egypt estimates it needs between 10 and 12 billion dollars in international funding to keep it going until mid-2012
