Egypt's Suez Canal revenues rose to $439.8 million in May from $427.9 million the previous month, a cabinet statement said on Tuesday.

The canal is the fastest shipping route between Europe and Asia and one of the Egyptian government's main sources of foreign currency. Egypt has been struggling to revive its economy since a 2011 uprising scared away tourists and foreign investors, key earners of hard currency.
