In the fiscal year 2020-2021 (July-June), the revenue of the Suez Canal in Egypt reached a record 584 million dollars. In the last financial year, the amount of income was 572 crore dollars. The Suez Canal Authority recently released figures for the fiscal year ended last month.

Canal authorities say the canal’s revenue has reached nearly 3 billion dollars in the first six months of this year, despite the container shipwreck in March. Where the revenue in the first half of last year was 276 crore dollars.

Last March, Ever Given was stuck in the canal for six days. And this closes the important route of world trade. The Suez Canal authorities released the ship earlier this month after reaching an agreement with the owner and the insurer. Sources said that after the settlement, a hearing was held in a court in Egypt recently on the case filed by the authorities for compensation.
