Although Egypt has a positive growth rate, the country is considered poor. Developing countries with large, crowded populations, experience many diverse problems.

"Egypt has had a very strong economic growth in recent years, a situation that continues even as of 2005, with a growth in GDP of 4.5% divided on a population growth of 1.8%. Despite the positive growth, Egypt still exhibits extreme differences between rich and poor, and is by any standard still to be considered a poor country.

Egypt is grossly overpopulated, and there is neither sufficient agricultural land, nor water resources to sustain the ever increasing population currently estimated at about 70 million. Even if there is considerable growth in many parts of the Egyptian economy at the present, most observers regard overpopulation as the country's largest problem, and it is little addressed by the authorities."

Limited resources in over populated countries dilutes many of the problems faced.
