Treasury bills are defined as a government debt instrument issued for a period ranging from three months to one year. Therefore, it is considered a short-term investment tool.

The Ministry of Finance authorizes the CBE, throughout the fiscal year, to manage its own offerings of treasury bills and bonds in Egyptian pounds, provided that it finances and spends the proceeds on items in the state’s general budget for the current fiscal year.
