The OCDE's preliminary estimate is that the denial of service event 
(27 January - 2 February) has cost Egypt 90 million dollars (65 
million euros).

"The blocked services represented between 3% and 4% of the GNP, 
therefore a loss of 18 million dollars (13 million euros) per day."

The OCDE's estimate of the lasting effect of the denial of service 
event negates a key element of the national economic development 
strategy, attracting foreign investment.
