Egypt Name and Land Facts


Occupying the northeast corner of the African continent, Egypt is filled with a deep history of Africa. Egypt has a desert climate with hot, dry summers and moderate winters. It is located in Northern Africa, bordering the Mediterranean Sea, between Libya and the Gaza Strip, and the Red Sea north of Sudan, and includes the Asian Sinai Peninsula. The English name Egypt derives from the ancient Greek name for the country Aigyptos, the Arabic name Misr can be traced to the ancient Akkadian misru meaning border or frontier.

About the population and people of Egypt


Most of the country is desert, so about 95% of the population is concentrated in a narrow strip of fertile land along the Nile River, which represents only about 5% of Egypt’s land area. Egypt is the most populous country in the Arab world and the third most populous country in Africa, behind Nigeria and Ethiopia. Around 42 percent of Egyptians are urbanites while 58 percent are rural dwellers.

Brief look at Egypt’s economy


Agriculture, hydrocarbons, manufacturing, and especially tourism drive the Egyptian economy. Other major exports are crude oil and petroleum products, fruits and vegetables, cotton, textiles, metal products, chemicals, and processed food. Egypt is bisected by the highly fertile Nile valley where most economic activity takes place.
