Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Redistribution is intended to solve the problem of food  scarcity driven support for new revolutions. But how this impacts the trade deficit is a good point. Checking with CIA, the largest group of imports is machinery and equipment followed by foodstuffs. Among the largest import partners feature China, US and Germany with 25% of Egypt's imports. This is of course far from all BMW's and ipods, and includes supplies for industry but there should be some room for decrease of not so essential goods.

If anyone has a better breakdown of Egyptian imports it would be interesting.
