CAIRO – 13 June 2022: Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El Sisi to inaugurate livestock, dairy and mechanized slaughterhouses complex on Monday in Sadat City, Menoufia Governorate.

The projects are part of the milk production complex in Sadat City, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Radi said.

Earlier in May, Sisi attended a ceremony to inaugurate Egypt's 'Future Project for Agricultural Production' at Dabaa-Rod El Farag Road.

Egypt's 'Future Project for Agricultural Production' comprises more than a million feddans, which represents around 50 percent of the New Delta agricultural project, Bahaa El-Ghannam, the director of the project said during the ceremony.

The first phase of the project has been implemented over the past four years and comprises 350,000 feddans, Ghannam said.

He noted that 700,000 feddans will be already reclaimed within the project during this year.

The project will comprise 350,000 feddans cultivated by wheat by 2024, which will produce 1 million tons of the strategic crop.

Egypt's imports of wheat, corn and soybeans stood at $8 billion in 2021, Ghannam said.

During the ceremony, President Sisi urged intensifying efforts within the framework of the project to be fully implemented by 2023.

The national agricultural projects being implemented at a "very high" cost seek to provide job opportunities, including in the neediest governorates of Beni Suef and Minya, besides securing agricultural crops, Sisi said.

“I am in a challenge to meet my people and nation’s needs,” Sisi said, adding: “It is a pledge that I adhere to and seek to fulfill.”
