Abstract: Currency devaluation is a monetary policy followed by some countries for variety of reasons, such as achieving a specific exchange rate objective or reviving competitiveness in the global market. The reasons for adopting currency devaluation differ from country to country and the results are as well influenced by several internal factors related to the economy and politics of the state or even external factors. In this paper, we will investigate how currency devaluation of the Egyptian pound could cause a positive effect on the Egyptian total foreign reserves minus gold. In addition, we will draw on the Turkish experience in devaluation and then provide recommendations on how to increase the positive impact of devaluation on the Egyptian total foreign reserves using time series data from 1985 to 2016 derived from a multiple linear regression model for Turkey. After analyzing the results, we found out that exports are the most important factor in supporting foreign reserves and are highly benefiting from the decision of floating the currency, taking into consideration that each country has different conditions therefore this experiment will beconsidering generating policies fitting Egypt.
