Egypt to exchange electricity for Sudanese food products

Tue, Feb. 19, 2019
CAIRO - 19 February 2019: Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy Mohamed Shaker told Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli on Tuesday that electricity will be delivered to Sudanese plants by the end of March.

Shaker said that coordination with his Sudanese counterpart is taking place and that the maximum amount that can be delivered at this stage is 40 megawatts.

Minister of Supply and Internal Trade Ali al-Meselhy, who attended the meeting, proposed exchanging electricity for food products and crops currently being imported from Sudan such as meat, soya beans, and sunflowers.

The prime minister urged finalizing a deal with Sudan that would allow Egypt to receive the equivalent of the value of electricity delivered to Sudan as crops and food products. Madbouli also affirmed the importance of finishing electricity linkage with the neighboring country.
